The Return of Punk “Fashion”

The New York Times (registration required, yatta yatta) has an interesting article titled A Strike in the Heart of Pretty: Punk Rocks Again on how the “aggressively downbeat look” of the glory days of punk are making themselves felt on the fashion runways and oh so chi chi boutiques of the world. Of course, today’s punk “trend” is quite a bit tamer to suit mainstream tastes but it looks like the influence of the Ramones has even insinuated itself into fashion circles. Gabba, Gabba Hey Dahling!
