The top picture is the "image" Billy MacKenzie is most known for, the beret wearing, cultured European look. Although the photo is from the 80's, I've no idea where he would have got those slip-ons from back then - they are exactly the same kind I wore at primary school in the 60's!

Style magazine, The Face, got Billy to do a bit of modelling for a summer fashion feature in August 1982. This is him posing with fellow Associate, Martha Ladley, getting everyone in a holiday mood.

Funnily enough, I went on a 4 week tour of France for my holiday that year and did indeed travel around with my white breeks rolled up, as in the photo.
I wouldn't have worn a shirt like that one though!
