Fashion: 80s Sweater
By Fitz - 9/21/2006

I bought this thing for my trip to Burning Man this year (it gets COLD in the desert at night). When I first spied it in a vintage clothing store I thought: "Wow. That looks just like something Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran would have worn back in the day." Checking the price tag I was amused to read: "80's high-art sweater. Very Duran Duran!". I chucked, checked the fit, haggling over price, and it was mine.

Although I bought it for my trip it's pretty close to current Mesmers hues meaning it will probably be making an appearance on stage. Oh, and for those interested, it's labeled "Saxony Collection" and is made of leather, suede, and various other patches of fabric.

If you're interested in seeing what this sort of clothing looked like in it's heyday I'd recommend Duran Duran The Greatest Video Hits on DVD. Anything from the Seven and the Ragged Tiger era has this look.
