King Road // During the 1970's, West London was a home for the rebellious and the creative, a hub for the young to express themselves, without the boundaries of the ordinary. The rebellious energy channelled itself into the loud, brash and visually bold styles which were fueled by the punk scene of the time. Spearheaded by designer Vivienne Westwood and Sex Pistol's manager Malcolm McLaren the punk era shaped London's culture for generations with its defiance of the mainstream. The King Road Gi features heavy embellishments across both the jacket and pants to create a raw, aggressive looking aesthetic.
