Celebrating 1985 JF Rey

1985 – François Mitterand is President of France; Margaret Thatcher is Britain’s Prime Minister; and in America, Ronald Reagan holds the title as President. There was economic prosperity, creative freedom, daring and crazy chic…not to mention legendary figures with amazing artistic creativity like Serge Gainsbourg, Karl Lagerfeld, David Bowie, Prince, Madonna and many more. “Anything was possible,” says Jean-François Rey of the Marseilles based company bearing his name, “and every eccentricity was allowed. Young people were free, with a certain lightness to their lives. Nightlife and the legendary Parisian clubs…electrified the creative world.”
