style icon: claude from degrassi high.
the costume design on this show is nothing short of remarkable. in a US high school show, there will be a few token “subcultural types” floating in the background. on degrassi, these sorts characters are not only front and center, they are formidable romantic leads with long story arcs.
also, the attention to detail is staggering. look at fucking claude’s accessories. it boggled the mind. he transitions from this bizarre peace punk/new romantic look into full fledged goth-in-crisis over the course of the school year, culminating in (spoiler) his suicide in the boys room.
more cheap ass homemade screen caps from the amazing, stupendous degrassi high to come.
