We already knew that menswear designer John Varvatos is way into Led Zeppelin. (Really, who isn’t?)

He also resurrected legendary NYC punk-rock club CBGB, casts grizzled rock gods in his ad campaigns, and designs sneaker collabs with Converse (arguably the most rock-and-roll shoe to ever walk the earth). The Detroit-born designer’s latest homage to loud sounds is a volume of iconic photos, entitled John Varvatos: Rock in Fashion. The book explores the reciprocal relationship between audio and visual, underscoring how acts ranging from Pink Floyd to The Clash and Axl Rose to Alice Cooper have influenced the world with their style and mannerisms as much as with their music.

Keep reading for a glimpse at some of our favorite photos from the book—plus a Q&A with John Varvatos himself.
