Never Mind the Bollocks!: The Truth Behind Punk Style

None at Chandelier Creative

Thu, Sep 1 at 7 p.m.   |   90 minutes


Punk rock is the poster child of street style. That’s what the fashion books tell us, and we’ve come to accept it as truth that original ‘70s punk was born on the streets of London with disenfranchised kids using clothing as a signifier of everything they hated. While it’s always wise to ‘not let the truth get in the way of a good story’, the real story of punk fashion is even more fascinating, for this ultimate in anarchy was in fact as manufactured and contrived to ‘cloth a lifestyle’ as J.Crew or Lilly Pulitzer.
