    "Bondage" pants, late 1970s
    Vivienne Westwood (British, born 1941); Malcolm McLaren (British, born 1946)

    This version of what is known as the "Cambridge Rapist" T-shirt lacks the text and may have been a concession to the controversy that the original version elicited. Depicting the masked image against a distressed English flag is an overt representation of punk's anti-establishment message.
