The 1980s eh? Has ever a decade been more ripe for nostalgia what with the music and the hair and that? Ok, in reality as someone born in the middle of the 1980s I don’t have many cultural reference points on this but a new show opening next month at the V&A museum is devoted to the fashions that defined that decade. And ahead of From Club To Catwalk, the V&A magazine commissioned iconic i-D founder Terry Jones to design the cover and he raided his publication’s archives to create a splendid pink and green dominated image with a cheeky nod to his own title too.
Editor Thomas Phongsathorn has a very discerning eye when it comes to choosing top creatives to work on the cover, and Terry follows in the footsteps of the likes of Neville Brody and Hélène Binet. Roll on the exhibition!
