Punk rock

Saint Lau­rent

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

The garage rock of Cal­i­for­nian band Froth and art by Ray­mond Pet­ti­bon set the tone for a hy­brid look that crosses 1950s rock­a­billy with 1980s punk. Drain­pipe trousers cropped at the an­kle were worn with a striped coat, black shirt, skinny grey tie and mono­chrome creeper shoes. Tex­ture and pat­tern clashed de­light­fully in a green Elvis- style se­quin jacket worn with a tar­tan scarf. There was a great va­ri­ety of coats— sin­gle and dou­ble- breasted, short and long, trench and biker— in a plethora of fab­rics and pat­terns, from plaid, hound­stooth and wool to leather and vel­vet. A high­light was a khaki parka re­worked into what looked like a cape. Ac­ces­sories were a key el­e­ment and in­cluded a tiger safety- pin brooch, a stud­ded brief­case and mar­mot- fur lace- ups.
