The Third Summer of Love

ph Corinne Day for The Face, 1990

The summers of 1988 and 1989 are generally referred to as the “Second Summer of Love”, as the drug ecstasy fuelled dance floors and raves across the British Isles and Ibiza.
But for The Face, 1990 was when the scene started moving from the underground to the charts, via the terraces, with young “football thugs with flowers” making a new brand of funky, psychedelic rock you could dance to.
And with what started as a playful shooting between three friends, ended with launching extraordinary carees of all the present protagonists : Kate Moss, Corinne Day and Melanie Ward.
