Punk is Dead

Long live Punk! Dame Vivienne Westwood (1941-2022) passed away yesterday. Heralding the punk scene in 70’s London, along with Malcolm McLaren (r), for a disenfranchised youth who needed a music and fashion scene to reflect the counterculture lifestyle they were exploring . As well as safety pins, ripped t-shirts, tartan and outspoken graphics, the leather biker jacket was also utilized.

“You’ve got to invest in the world, you’ve got to read, you’ve got to go to art galleries, you’ve got to find out the names of plants. You’ve got to start to love the world and know about the whole genius of the human race. We’re amazing people.”
