The British artist and musician, who died in 2010, is best known as the former manager of the Sex Pistols, and also worked with the New York Dolls and Bow Wow Wow, and who dated and collaborated with Vivienne Westwood, encouraging her fashion with his significant influence on her enduring designg –  The Pharrell Hat.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re talking about a person, mostly known as Malcolm McLaren.

This week, an exhibition at the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair celebrates McLaren’s work with Westwood and his contributions to the fashion industry. Titled “Let It Rock: The Look of Music, the Sound of Fashion” . The exhibit also includes notes McLaren gave Westwood for her autumn/winter 1982–1983 collection, the Nostalgia of Mud — which included the Buffalo Hat made famous by Pharrell. Just before his death, he composed the soundtrack for Dries Van Noten’s fall 2010 show.
