Back in their ’90s heyday, the Spice Girls were unstoppable. Their individual style choices and Britpop-tastic attitude aimed a defiant kick at the cultural status quo, defining a new era of British creativity and challenging the male-dominated music industry to change. With their unapologetic energy and knockout charisma, they launched a global pop-culture tidal wave, while their rallying cry of ‘Girl Power!’ changed the face of feminism almost overnight. Featuring insights from bestselling author Terry Newman, Spice Girls and the Clothes They Wear celebrates their iconic outfits from the early days to their grown-up designer wardrobes. From Scary Spice’s animal prints to the story of Ginger Spice’s repurposed Union Jack tea towel, their bold looks once epitomised Y2K fashion and continue to occupy a special place in our hearts. Amid rumours of a massive reunion for the upcoming 30th anniversary of their formation, this latest addition to a popular celebrity series is perfect for fashionistas and Spice Girls fans, young and old.
