WESTWOOD BONDAGE

This parachute jacket is a Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren design that was sold at Seditionaries, the store they opened together on Kings Road in London where punk as a style gained popularity in the 1970s. The bondage adjustable straps were a trademark at the store, and shows the irreverence and audacity of the movement. Wearing it in the archival picture is Lil Debbie, famous member of the Bromley Contingent, who were the first punk groupies. Other valuable classics of theirs are t-shirts printed with pornographic drawings and Queen Elizabeth iconography. This rare museum-worthy item is in Excellent condition, and any Vivienne Westwood/fashion collector will want to have it.
