Style: The Eleganza Story
Things Happen When You Wear ELEGANZA! Yes they do. This is one style I don’t see coming back too quickly. What can you call this? Urban Fop? Victorian Disco? I have no idea. Obviously targeted at the black urban population, it’s hard to imagine anyone, black or white wearing this stuff. If you watch some old Blaxploitation movies, you’ll see it briefly – Super Fly, The Mack, Blacula, Monkey Hustle, etc. I don’t imagine the man-on-the-street took to this too readily – but I could be wrong. Not much about the company other then it was a mail order catalog located on Diamond St. Brockton Mass. That’s the story. A nice look into that deep ugly hole called 70’s fashion.
