I am guessing this was in late 1986 or 1987...either way, it's all 80s shoulder pads (courtesy of Jean Paul Gaultier) and 80s hair.

Keanan Duffty, Glen Matlock to Speak on Fashion, Music at Polimoda School

December 23, 2016 by Jean Palmieri WWD

The Polimoda fashion school in Florence will host a lecture on the intersection of fashion and music during the Pitti Uomo show in January.

Sex Pistols founder Glen Matlock will join Council of Fashion Designers of America member Keanan Duffty for a guest lecture entitled The Saturday Boys on Jan. 11 at 5:30 p.m. The presentation will open the Polimoda Rendez-Vous series for 2017.

Duffty said he was invited to give a keynote lecture by Polimoda’s dean, Danilo Venturi and asked Matlock to join him since 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bollock album, which was a defining moment for punk music.

According to Duffty, Matlock worked in Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s Let It Rock shop in the early Seventies and printed many of their early provocative T-shirts. “He has an insider’s view of London rock ‘n’ roll fashion, which can also be found in his autobiography ‘I Was a Teenage Sex Pistol.’ He has an encyclopedia knowledge of youth culture like that of Gary Kemp from Spandau Ballet,” Duffty said. The British-born Duffty is also versed in the fashion and music culture. He started out creating hats for Steph Raynor and Helen Robinson’s PX in London’s Covent Gardens
