[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlQWbnW1CoI]Mechanical Dolls (Vogue Italia Short)[/url] S:) [center][/center] [url=http://www.oribe.com/index.php/explore/view/1991]Antonio Lopez[/url] drawings ...might be the earliest examples of what would morph into the New Romantic fashion-style: [center] [img]http://s7.postimage.org/4jevoygcb/ats1.jpg[/img] [img]http://s8.postimage.org/k1kdg0zhx/ats2.jpg[/img] [img]http://s14.postimage.org/mfvt3mdsh/ats3.jpg[/img] [img]http://s2.postimage.org/5hokat3cp/an04.jpg [/img] [img]http://s2.postimage.org/lh77uczeh/an03.jpg [/img] [img]http://s2.postimage.org/tk5e5ojzt/an05.jpg [/img] [img]http://s2.postimage.org/zc5ictttl/an02.jpg [/img] [img]http://s2.postimage.org/fvksqaypl/an01.jpg[/img] [/center] I believe Antonio's style with his 70s-era illustrations, may have been a big influence on Patrick Nagel. And indirectly, they were both quite influential. Another thing iis that some of the street-style, was in-fact a contemporary-fad. Also, that fit into the retro-concept of the film. As this fad did also at the time, incorporate 1930/40-style (also pushed slightly earlier by hi-fashion in major Western centers). It's conglomeration of retro-complementary fashion-styles, with a dash of futurism. The designers simply went for a plug n' play approach, under Ridley's direct-supervision. What they did come-up with, especially as to what made the film ...most of it already existed in some form in the present real-world. Maybe another reason the film was heavily criticized for not being futuristic enough.

Thank-you Svanya:) + 1 more that I had in my bookmarks that was very J.F. [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlQWbnW1CoI]Mechanical Dolls (Vogue Italia Short)[/url] S:) LOL, yes ...this her in both your sets of mini-captures. Actually, that is one-thing that kinda bugged me about that sequence. As we do see many of the same street-people ...again n' again. Somewhat gives the scene, we ran outta-extras look. However, the removal of the spoon-feeding voice-over, makes-up for it. Although, when one does get to looking through many of the production, & promo materials ...you see much that didn't make the final-cut. Even quite a few far-out looking costumed extras. Also, with your last reply regarding "punk", & "gothic" ...not the correct words to describe this look. If anything that is a generalization, & with using those two descriptors quite loosely. However, I do realize if someone wasn't present in the UK, US, or Canada ...80s New Wave would be something almost alien. And from what I can see on the web, it's not well do***ented, nor even understood properly. I guess it was something that you really just had to the be there for it, LOL. Anyway, my point is that some of the street-style, was in-fact a complementary-fad. And that fit into the retro-concept of the film. As this fad did also at the time incorporate 1930/40-style (also pushed slightly earlier by hi-fashion in major Western centers). It's conglomeration of retro-complementary fashion-styles, with a dash of futurism. The designers simply went for a plug n' play approach, under Ridley's direct-supervision. What they did could-up with, especially as to what made the film ...most of it already existed in some form in the present real-world.
