Byronesque Channels Early Punk Through Archival Margiela, Vivienne Westwood, Yohji Yamamoto and More for Exclusive Online Pop-up

Byronesque, vintage clothing marketplace app, has teamed up with Vestiaire Collective for an exlusive pop up featuring archival designer pieces. Think Margiela painted tabis, Jean Paul Gaultier trench coats, Helmut Lang dresses and more. The pop up pays homage to some of the most iconic moments of the ’80s, ’90s and early ’00s.

eac754da4dc058eac2a7db7b50930d87.jpgGill Linton, Byronesque founder, says “naturally our timeline starts at Punk and misses anything too hippie or pretty before the ‘80s. In the similar punk spirit, Martin Margiela painted over clothes and shoes to re-imagine items from previous collections. When there’s no corporate budgets creativity is the best currency to have.”

In the editorial, Linton refers to the punk scene during the heydays of Vivienne Westwood and The Sex Pistols, “If a piece of clothing could start a fight, it’s this multicoloured Seditionaries mohair jumper that belonged to Johnny Rotten and has been authenticated by the Westwood Company.”

Moreover, a fashion film appropriately titled No Ticket, No Coat was created by subculture legend Derek Ridgers to capture the essence what it felt like to live during those times. The film “pays tribute to a time when what you wore mattered more than who you were” claims its creative director Justin Westover.
