I thought I’d start off Music Week at WWJW with a look not unfamiliar to my readers — my trusty Go International military vest, which was inspired by Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2009 runway.  Balmain’s ironclad jackets proved to be a favourite among divas like Rihanna and Beyonce… but more notably, pay homage to the everlastingly cool Sgt. Pepper days of The Beatles.

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is not only critically acclaimed for its music, but also its artistry, specifically its album cover.  Containing a collage of notable celebrities cut-and-pasted behind the Sgt. Pepper’s band née The Beatles, the ensamble is known as “People We Like.”  Creative contributors include prominent London art dealer Robert Fraser, pop artist Peter Blake and his wife Jann Haworth, noted rock’n’roll photographer Michael Cooper, and of course the envelope-pushing Beatles themselves.  Manuel Cuevas designed The Beatles’ day-glo military style suits, which, like the band, were destined for eternal fame and mimicry.

Just like Michael Jackson.
