Those of a certain era remember Michael Jackson’s 1982 stellar "best selling album of all time" Thriller. The impact of this album, and the title track still has me shivering in my YSL brogues.
Well . . . fast forward to fall ’08. The genius of Martin Margiela has fashioned a version of the jacket in nylon and is in stores now! In the mid-80s that jacket was a must have either in leather or pleather if you couldn’t part with the few hundred dollars that it cost at the time. Margielas nylon version is turning heads once again and I attest to that fact because I witnessed Pharrell crooning in style wearing the jacket at the XXX Diesel party in Brooklyn last weekend!
Michael is still thrilling the kids!
