Miami Vice Lifestyle!

The other day I was lazily on my sofa zapping on satellite TV and casually I bump into the retro channel where there was on a cult TV movie of my youngest years (ok, I’m not too young you can understand about this): Miami Vice!

The series for whom don’t know it was a big success of eighty’s starred Don Johnson (as Sonny Crockett) and Philip Michael Thomas  (as Ricardo Tubbs) as two Metro-Dade Police Department detectives working undercover in Miami. The Miami Vice Production was a breakthrough for the TV programs of that time for many aspect like its innovative use of music, particularly countless pop and rock hits of the 1980s and the distinctive, synthesized instrumental music. While other television shows used made-for-TV music, Miami Vice would spend $10,000 or more per episode to buy the rights to original recordings.

More important Miami Vice is note for the use of fashion! The clothes worn on Miami Vice had a significant influence on men’s fashion. They popularized, if not invented, the “T-shirt under Armani jacket” style, and popularized Italian men’s fashion in the United States. Don Johnson’s typical lineup of Italian sport coat, T-shirt, white linen pants, and slip-on sockless loafers became a hit. Even Crockett’s perpetually unshaven appearance sparked a minor fashion trend, inspiring men to wear a small amount of beard stubble, also known as a five o’clock shadow (or “designer stubble”) at all times. On an average episode, Crockett and Tubbs wore five to eight outfits, appearing in shades of pink, blue, green, peach, fuchsia and the show’s other “approved” colors.

In honor of all that I went around the grid to create today’s style for all of you!
