Legendary manager of the sex pistols and former husband and business partner of Dame Vivienne Westwood has sadly passed away aged 64 after a battle with cancer.
McLaren contributed a great deal to both music and fashion, Joe Corre the son he had with Vivienne is the co-founder of agent provacateur and it was Malcolm whom first encouraged Vivienne to design garments after they opened a shop together on The Kings Road. Vivienne and Malcolm drew inspiration from bikers and rubber fetish gear, which created a shocking impact during the conservative 1970’s.
Dame Vivienne Westwood was one of the first to comment upon his death and pay tribute to him today describing him as “a very charismatic, special and talented person.” she went on to say “When we were young and I fell in love with Malcolm, I thought he was beautiful and I still do. The thought of him dead is really something very sad. We hadn’t been in touch for a long time.”
