It has been read and known of how music inspires fashion.We don’t hear as much talking about music being ispired by fashion, even though the bond is more visible. A perfect example are those songs that mention fashion designers: how not to remember Rino Gaetano, which in 1978 already couldn’t stand Cardin, Cartier and Gucci. During the next 20 years, the amount of dance songs idolizing big labels, (Gucci on top of them all) has been countless. At the end of the 70s, the tuscan brand along with Fiorucci, has appeared in one of the most popular hits of those days: “He’s the Greatest Dancer” by Sister Sledge. How many of have noticed another name being mentioned right before the two italian brands, a certain “Halston”? The Halston in question is Roy Halston Frowick (1932-1990) one of the best loved designers, famous since 1961. Since the early 70s his fashion work (exclusively for women) became a sex icon and he bacame the most awaited guest at the Studio 54. Still today, there are plenty of 70s references even in menswear.
