Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion & Disco

Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex Fashion & Disco is a vibrant time capsule of the decadent world of ’70s haute couture as viewed through the eyes of Antonio Lopez, the dominant fashion illustrator of the era whose distinctive drawings graced the pages of Vogue and Elle. A Puerto Rican native raised in the Bronx, Antonio was a seductive arbiter of style and glamour who brought urban street elements to a postwar fashion world desperate for change and diversity.

Counted among Antonio’s discoveries were iconic beauties such as Grace Jones, Jessica Lange and Jerry Hall. Antonio’s inner circle was also comprised of celebrated photographer Bill Cunningham and rival designers Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint-Laurent. All these characters and more come together to create a vivid portrait of Antonio Lopez and the revolutionary fashion world he helped create.
