The magic of Malcolm McLaren

Malcolm McLaren

Happy Birthday Malcolm McLaren! The guy had his faults but he still stands as one of the most influential music and fashion innovators this country has ever seen. He brought punk, hip-hop, vogueing and world music to mass culture, as well as the utter gem that is Something’s Jumpin’ In Your Shirt (*sound ON!*) and the classic Double Dutch video (I’m desperate for an Ebonettes tee)…

I buried this link in yesterday’s post but here it is again, a 2005 email exchange between Malcolm McLaren and Maison Martin Margiela from T Magazine. It’s the best read ever; in it he muses on creativity, Mao, ‘shoppertainment’, internet lawlessness and the fabulosity of Christmas in St. Bart’s.

Miss ya Malcolm!
