This is a great photograph. Takes me back to the Punk years. Have they ever really stopped? Answer?, no. At the age of 52 I am still drawn to the military boot and one of the days will buy myself a pair. Why not I say.
Teddy Boys, Mods, Punks, Waivers, Iggy, Patty Smith, Buzzcocks, The Dolls, McClaren – The music, art, fashion attitude, counterculture and then the wave of influences. Good to see at least the dynamic and brilliant visual audacity of it all is still alive and well!
Definitely not punk. Industrial Gothic perhaps if I was to label it. All of us kids who wore all black, doc boots, and listened to NIN in the 90's are now around 30 and designing clothes. He looks like my best friend in high school in 1995, yet completely current. Its the direct line from Helmut's biker pants to modern day Rick Owens. Goth glam has returned.
