PUNK en Grande-Bretagne : Une mode vestimentaire aussi

En Grande-Bretagne, le punk est musical mais aussi vestimentaire. Malcolm Mc Laren et sa boutique SEX sur Kings Road en fut le précurseur/importateur.

Sur l'égérie Jordan (Pamela Rooke), cette notice de Wikipedia :Jordan (born Pamela Rooke on 23 June 1955 in Seaford, East Sussex), is a model and actress noted for her work with Vivienne Westwood and the SEX boutique in the Kings Road area of London in the mid-1970s, and for being a fixture at many of the early Sex Pistols performances. Her style and fashion sense — a platinum-blonde bouffant hairdo with dark raccoon-like eye make-up — made her a highly visible icon of the London punk subculture, and she is credited with creating the punk look.
Rooke commuted daily to London from the south coast. She recalled that her Punk image caused problems for her:
I commuted for about two years. I had some real bad dos on the train. I had tourists trying to pay me for my photo…worse than that, mothers saying that I'm upsetting their children and debauching them and how dare I get on a train looking like that. Somebody tried to throw me off the train one day, literally out the door, so British Rail told me to go sit in first class, get out of trouble.[1]
In the late 1970s, she served as the manager for Adam Ant's band Adam and the Ants. She recorded the track "Lou" (about Lou Reed) as a guest lead vocalist with the band for BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel's Peel Sessions and often performed the song live with them from mid 1977 up to May 1978 when she left the band.
She made a cameo appearance in Derek Jarman's debut film, Sebastiane and played the lead role in his follow-up film Jubilee, as the punk "anti-historian" Amyl Nitrite. She can also be seen in The Great Rock and Roll Swindle wearing an "only anarchists are pretty" t-shirt.
Today, Rooke works as a veterinary nurse and breeds Burmese cats.
