Lou Reed

A man of mystery. This American muse came onto the scene in a band called The Velvet Underground. Andy Warhol helped his way to fame as he produced their self titled album along with designing the famous banana front cover.

In his younger years, Lou had been put though electric shock therapy to ‘cure’ his homosexuality. Whether or not it was this which gave him great musical talent. we shall never know, but he can sure write some amazing lyrics.

He is known for hiding behind his rock star sunglasses, and covering his mop of curly dark hair under a flat cap. Although he experimented once by bleaching his hair, a look we are still unsure of, this man is a true fashion icon.
