Today’s pic comes from Playboy’s annual Rock the Rabbit issue, which saw fit to include our beloved Hall & Oates, shot by the legendary Mick Rock and styled by the men themselves.
Mr. Hall’s explanation for the rockabilly getup is as follows: “Rebellion is tradition.” Which is a pretty good summary of his discography, now that we think of it. We’re not sure how the Bono-lite shades play into it…but we'll let him get by with a warning.
The information that downtown dude John Varvatos had opened a boutique in uptown East Hampton somehow passed us by, but then we spend more time upstate than on the East End these days—for reasons which should be obvious enough if you've ever been bumper-to-bumper on the Montauk Highway.
In any case, the designer who recently revamped CBGBs celebrated the first anniversary of his Hamptons outpost the other night with an exhibition of photos by the legendary Mick Rock, famous for his iconic shots of the likes of Iggy, Bowie, and Syd Barrett.
