MALCOLM MCLAREN WAS THE ARCHITECT OF PUNK


We can’t let the passing of Malcolm McLaren go by without recognizing his immense cultural influence on both fashion and music. This “architect of punk” gave us The Sex Pistols and revolutionized the disco driven 70’s. In 1971 he opened his “Sex” shop on Kings Road with his then-girlfriend Vivienne Westwood and it became a magnet for style obsessed young people everywhere. On our first trip to London, that store was the first stop and it was amazing. (It was rumored that a girl had recently given herself an abortion in the dressing room with a coat hangar.) Bondage gear, red plaid suits, safety pin jewelry, and ripped insult t shirts. Malcolm and Vivienne changed fashion forever and inspired generations of designers to come. We wish we had saved a bondage jacket or seditionary t shirt – they’re worth thousands now.

    Even John Lydon couldn’t stay mad at him. He was a remarkable talent and innovator, even though he stole from everyone. Your comment about the plaid skirts makes me wonder whatever happened to Spaz Attack? If anyone knows, Janet, it would be you. Such good times, eh?

    Can’t you block captain america? He’s really offensive and contributes nothing.
