Alphabet Club hosts a Sue Clowes evening during
February 2014 Milan Fashion Week
Sue Clowes was invited by Milan’s hottest club “Rocket” to participate in a fashion night called “Alphabet” revisiting her early eighties vintage collection together with her Night Sky Junkie 2014 collection. Alphabet is a high energy night haunt with a strong personality and style just like the Clowes label. The garments looked fantastic on the drop dead gorgeous night owls of Milan. Situated in a mysterious factory alongside the fashionable Alzaia Naviglio Grande, the evening was a riot with roller Skaters dressed in the vintage Foundry outfits as worn by Culture Club and Bananarama most of them now in the Victoria and Albert museum archives. The bar staff served cocktails wearing prints from the Clowes Culture collection and Djette Barbarella and Enza Van De Kamp were “Le Regine della console” both dressed in the Night Sky Junkie prints decorated with diamante crosses.
The club not only has style but carries with it strong reminiscences of London’s historic Electric ballroom, a live music venue where many bands such as The Clash played in the 1980’s and the Roxy Roller skating rink New York. The fabulous Alphabet party, hosted by Luca Crescenzi together with Michele Modica, Gianni De Nisi and Simona Perrini, promises out-of-towners visiting this magnificent Italian city a night to remember. Italy is, after all is said and done, a unique country where the dress prowess of men has acted as a calling card since Renaissance times.
