McLaren and Westwood gained infamy with their shocking T-shirts.
McLaren and Westwood gained notoriety in London and the rest of the world with their controversial T-shirts. Examples included a design that incorporated the notorious serial killer known as the Cambridge Rapist; Mickey and Minnie Mouse having sex; cowboys with their penises out; and a portrait of Queen Elizabeth with a safety pin through her lip. These T-shirts and the styles that they spawned were meant to shock and disturb—and they were definitely successful. McLaren, as the manager of the Sex Pistols, made sure that the band was always wearing clothes that Westwood designed.
