Apologies for yesterday’s interregnum; normal service is resumed and, by way of making amends, here are a couple of incredible postcards from THE LOOK archive.
The Fiorucci postcard (credited to Eric Shemilt Design Ltd) was contributed by the world’s best gal Mrs G and looks as though it dates from the early to mid-80s, when the label was in its pomp.
Many happy hours were spent dashing between levels via the chrome spiral staircase in the splendid store at 122 King’s Road (as well as at the Euro-prep spin-off Classic Nouveau across the way).
Pippa’s switched-on 90s/00s Soho shop Shop was one of the few UK outlets for Hysteric. The card was issued as part of the label’s A/W 97 campaign, when it’s UK presence was handled by the estimable Gimme 5 (whose Michael Kopelman was a major contributor to THE LOOK). Sad to reflect that it’s a year since the passing of Kopelman’s brother-in-soul-and-style James Lebon.
The cards may not be seasonal but, in the spirit of the groovy times they evoke, THE LOOK wishes you happy + peaceful holidays.
