His Way

He did it his way.
Partnering with Vivienne Westwood to create revolutionary street wear and a new movement.
In 1975, Mclaren took over as manager of a band called The Strand, soon to become The Sex Pistols and the soundtrack to the punk subculture.

Vale Malcolm Mclaren. (22 January 1946 – 8 April 2010)

Spending almost 6 months living in hannover in Germany, I encountered many punks- living on the streets as a lifestyle choice, rebelling against the values of their parents.

What was started in a shop called Sex 35 years ago, still lives today.

But maybe just not quite as outspoken as it once was.
