19. Library of Cool

After reading an article on Boy George in ID (summer 2010) it got me interested in 80's fashion and the role of males and females in fashion. I found the idea of cross dressing really interesting and it fascinated me how Boy George's make up always looks perfect! 
I decided to hunt further into the 80's and found some of my mum and dads old LP's in a cupboard at home. I especially like the Blondie and The Police covers as they look really retro but the fashions and style can be related to todays music scene. 
Over the summer I discovered the film "This is England" and loved the fashions and gang culture that was portrayed in the film.
I found a photography book by Michael Lavine that I loved. It is called "Grunge", it is a book of images taken from the 90's music grunge scene including street fashion and photo shoots of celebrities. I'm a big fan of Nirvana and Kurt Cobain features a lot in the book. I think the he would be a good muse for my future menswear project.
