Pet Shop Boys: Paninaro

They, ahem, rocked Glastonbury last night, so what better time to highlight perhaps the most stylish pop video ever – certainly from my point of view. Not only is the Paninaro promo full of immaculately dressed Milanese teens (all of whom will be about my age now), but Chris Lowe’s Massimo Osti-ish outfit is basically the template for the naval-influenced casual look that still predominates amongst those in the know today. Yet again, it proves the pre-acid house late ’80s was the coolest part of that most derided of decades. As Lowe intones: “I don’t like rock music… I don’t like much, but what I do like, I love with a passion.”. Absolutely spot on.
