We took an earlier look at the work of ex-Buffalo member, Judy Blame. Now Max , one of our fashion correspondents weighs in wonderfully on the legacy of Buffalo's founder, Ray Petri.
Early 1980’s through mid 1980’s – Ray Petri/Stylist for THE FACE MAGAZINE. The various editorials that Ray Petri created for THE FACE MAGAZINE during this time period were groundbreaking and still are influential to this day. He was inspired by street culture, ‘bad boys,’ Jamaican Ragamuffin culture, East Indians, blacks, punk whites, rude boys, mods, New Romantics, boxers, Bob Marley’s BUFFALO SOLDIER song, Vivienne Westwood’s Buffalo collection, Malcom McClaren’s BUFFALO GIRL song, and Native American imagery, resulting in a fashion movement labeled “BUFFALO”.
