HBO’s Vinyl debut is set for Sunday, February 14th. The show focuses on New York’s music scene during the 1970′s. The Hollywood Reporter sat with the show’s costume designer, John Dunn and executive producers Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese to discuss the fashion and overall inspiration of the show to recreate NYC 70′s aesthetic.
Although the team used vintage pieces as well has high fashion, throughout the first season Dunn mentions how important the culture of New York in the 70′s played a part in fashion and style of the show
“Of course, NYC 1973 was the zenith of cool — a mashup of glam rock, punk and disco. “I think Marty, Terry and Mick picked it because it was the birth of a new culture,” says Dunn. “Max’s Kansas City was at its height: Andy Warhol’s crowd, Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground, Bowie, Robert Mapplethorpe, Alice Cooper hung out there, and it’s extremely well documented.”
