A New Book Captures the Anti-Fashion Trend of Punk's Early Days


A lot of people who are into punk don’t like to admit the influence it had on fashion. Because, you know, punk is about the music, maaaaan. But whether or not you want to accept it, it happened. The spikes, leather, and studs made popular by the first wave of punk bands later went on to infiltrate mainstream fashion. And since it happened, we might as well have someone to document it. That’s where Sheila Rock comes in. Her new book PUNK+ captures the anti-fashion phenomenon that got everyone spiking their hair and putting safety pins in things.

Check out some amazing photos here by Rock from PUNK+, which you can order from First Third Books.
