JEAN LUC GODARD

Jean Luc Godard influential and innovative film maker that was at the heart of the French Nouvelle Vague. He has made many films in many styles: a great deal of them experimental and he still continues ploughing his own furrow. In a five year period from 1960-1965 he made a set of movies that are both inspirational and still as fresh as a daisy. Just as Godard took inspiration from the USA many that have followed him have taken their inspiration from the movement
that he was a key part of.

T SHIRTS

 
The Master & the apprentice
 
The humble T shirt started life as an undergarment but during the fifties it became an American icon of clothing as sported by Brando and Dean. The White T shirt often worn with jeans represented the new breed and was something of a teenage uniform. Over the decades the T shirt has become synonymous with style and cool. It has seen many iterations: some featuring classic images appropriate for the style tribe that choose them and some that flooded the high street and were launched by a thousand far eastern sweatshops.
Whatever the colour, with or without print the T shirt endures.
Although, it still looks at its best on a couple of actors from over half a century ago .

BRUCE LEE

Bruce Lee left us forty years ago just as he gained international success with Warner Brothers' Enter The Dragon, but he had worked his way up the ladder to grasp his shot at the real big time. Before The Big Boss, Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon, and the half completed Game of Death Bruce had a decent career in the Hong Kong movie market before he went to Hollywood to serve his US apprenticeship alongside some established American actors in film and TV. Its all the more tragic that the charismatic and intelligent star never got to see how iconic he would become
