GREASE & GRUNGE
How simple and clear things were in the '50s.
Remember Grease, the 1970s movie about the 1950s, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John? He represented the bad kids as a juvenile delinquent, while she reincarnated the lovely, blue-eyed side of All-American youth. Nearly three decades later, these opposites attract more than ever as the '50s move back into the fashion spotlight - this time as a pitched battle between good and bad.
Mild-mannered university students wear messed-up argyle knits as if they had brushed up a little too close against John Travoltas greasy quiff.
And the popular jock breaks all the rules for good manners by mixing ho-style tiger prints with vintage-looking athletic gear.
