What’s to say for a start? Well, maybe the fact that it all started in 1970s. The economical situation and sociopolitical condition during 70’s in England was an indirect reason of the beginning of subcultural movement, which afterwards was called punk. That movement was young people’s denial of the cultural and political achievements of older generation. That didn’t only mean the ideological and political change, but also aesthetic revolution. One of the icons and – at the same time – creators of punk were Vivienne Westwood (today, the most famous and recognizable English fashion designer) and her life partner Malcolm McClaren (famous musician and manager). That eccentric couple was an author of the visual image of punk movement.
