Celebrating The Style And Music Of Late 1980s Manchester

For Spring Summer 2021, Levi’s Vintage Clothing celebrates the legendary style and music of late 1980s Manchester. Alternative rock dominated the dance culture. Young Indie bands, inspired by DJ’s spinning acid house for a growing club scene, asked these same DJ’s to collaborate on their records. The result was a heavy mix of dance rhythms and melodic retro-pop. This fresh sound created a whole new scene.

The Distinctive Manchester Style

As the Manchester sound evolved, so did its distinctive style. A handful of kids started buying up old-stock 1970s Levi’s flares and wearing them oversized to stand out from the crowd. Soon baggy jeans and bright colors were the looks of choice on the dance floors at local raves and warehouse parties. This explosive scene and its musical ethos left a mark on popular culture that continues to this day.
