Sassoon Academy Downtown Collection

Sunday, 12 May 2013 09:23

The city comes to life after a season of elegiac melancholy. New neon shoots are pushing through the cracks in the pavement and a spirit of anarchy breaks free.

Downtown New York’s Stephen Sprouse put 80’s youth culture on the global catwalk; graffiti maestro Keith Haring transformed street art into high culture, and enigmatic hair stylist Christiaan invented the buzz cut. Together these three pioneers and visionaries created a new visual language that directed the mood of the 80s and continues to influence popular culture today. A spirit of anarchy breaks free.
