This season I merged some of my favorite music themes into one vision for our Resort Lookbook, Buffalo Gals by Malcolm McLaren with Liquid Sky.
Liquid sky was a groundbreaking movie in 1981. It was the first New Wave Movie. Even though it was kind of terrible, it seemed like it was forward thinking in how it showed the New Wave culture that was booming in the early 80’s in NYC.
Buffalo gals was the first video in 1982 that showed break dancing. I saw it at The Ritz when I was 13 years old. Vivienne Westwood styled the clothing. The combo of prairie skirts on the girls combined with Hip Hop made a strong impression on me. I designed some hats with the milliner Lola to accent and showcase the jewelry adding the styling of the clothes and makeup to get the feel of that era.
