When you think of a fashion icon from the past, who is the first person that comes to mind? One we think she has graced the history pages in our mind right now is the girl named Debbie Harry.You might have known her song, her voice not only made an impact but she also have distinct signature styles that we can still draw inspiration from today.
Hail to the closer look at our chosen Denimfuture’s style iconic of the week, the singer, musician Debbie Harry and her rocker sense of style.. Deborah Harry began her life with a great deal of challenges. She was adopted into a family in New Jersey, and before she was a pioneer in the Punk and New Wave scenes, Debbie spent her 20′s as a playboy bunny, gogo dancer, secretary at BBC radio, and a backup singer.”
Debbie, at the age of 32, put together a band with her man Christ Stein as a guitarist and named it Blondie. With the band is when she rose and be known with her iconic songs; “Maria”, “One Way or Another” and “Heart of Glass” to name a few, and be seen in her iconic style.
She was a punk icon. Debbie’s style was incredibly unique, just like her; as the punk movement began hitting the United States, she was virtually the only female on the scene, and her band was pushing limits of punk and new wave with their shows. Debbie favored thrift store finds and alternated between an edgy punk look and a more feminine style, but her two-tone hair and loud lipstick were a constant.
Her style has been adopted times over times on; Courtney Love, Gwen Stefani, and other women in the music scene. But there is something magical about the way Debbie Harry did it: she pulled things off that shouldn’t work like denim on denim, looked fresh, and most of all, she made it look effortless.
