Vivienne Westwood Dies at 81

It's a pity it took the fashion designer's death for me to post this photo of Vivienne Westwood along with model Jordan (who died earlier this year at just 66 of the same type of cancer that claimed my brother's life) and Chrissie Hynde at the infamous Sex boutique on King's Road back in 1976. 

“I don’t think punk would have happened without Vivienne and Malcolm {McLaren],” the Great Pretender wrote in her memoir. “Something would have happened,” she continued, “and it might have been called punk, but it wouldn’t have looked the way it did, even in America. And the look was important.”

Indeed. Rest in punk.
