Fashion Editor: Caroline Baker
Issues 1 & 2 (Complete Run)
1977 & 1978
One of the first "street fashion" magazines. Edited by Caroline Baker of NOVA Magazine who allegedly coined the term "street fashion."
Only two issues of Deluxe were ever published, they predated i-D, and yet the magazine became a streetwear bible towards the end of the 70s. An interesting note about this publication: it includes the Seditionaries (Vivienne Westwood) presentation by Ku Khanh (the first Seditionaries shoot to ever appear in a magazine). You'll also find the classic Caroline Baker-styled shoot, 'Wild on the Side Walk." Plentiful YSL, Vivienne Westwood and Man Ray. A key piece of British fashion history and a precursor to i-D.
"Buy less, choose well: that's the maxim." - Vivienne Westwood
