Malcom McLaren

British performer, publicist, manager of the Sex Pistols, the New York Dolls, and Bow Wow Wow; entrepreneur, & visionaire Malcom McLaren passed away yesterday. A music and fashion icon during the fourth quarter of the 20th Century, he made important contributions to both fields that are still trascendent nowadays.

Before being manager of the Sex Pistols (which were introduced to the public using "above the line"/creative & innovative advertising techniques) he opened with then girlfriend Vivienne Westwood, one of Britain's most talented designers, a clothing store on Kings Road which was originally called Let It Rock.

Below Westwood & McLaren inside the store during the early 70s. McLaren is wearing a black shirt and pants, a golden skinny tie and waistcoat, a blue/black striped jacket, and messed up hair. Westwood on the other hand is wearing black leggings and a yellow angora sweater. Both outfits are very ecletic and stylish.
