Rolling Stone Doc On NYC 70’s Fashion

Rolling Stone is hosting a documentary series on fashion in New York City in the 1970’s. The series is being produced in conjunction with the folks from HBO’s new series Vinyl.

Nile Rodgers, the Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr., author Fran Lebowitz and more reminisce about the style of the early Seventies in the second installment of 1973: Shaping the Culture, a new video series from Rolling Stone, presented by HBO’s new show Vinyl.

“What’s great about ’73 is that, everybody forgets this, but kind of that pimp look,” Please Kill Me author Legs McNeil says. “That whole kind of Isaac Hayes, Shaft look. And the white guys made glam out of it … You gotta remember that men’s fashions were really ugly. When punk came, it was sort of like, ‘Fuck that.'”
