There was no other way to herald the return of Fiorucci other than with good old fashioned disco dance party. The cult Italian label’s signature curve-hugging jeans provided the wardrobe of choice for many a late night party in the genre’s heyday. Its name, of course, was once immortalized both in the lyrics of Sister Sledge’s classic “He’s The Greatest Dancer” and the title of Mark Leckey’s art film exploring underground nightlife, Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore. The brand is practically synonymous with a certain brand neon-tinged hedonism of the ’70s and ’80s. And so, on Friday night, W magazine threw a party at Paul’s Casablanca marking the comeback that drew Fiorucci fans like Sofia Coppola, Ann Dexter-Jones, Caroline Vreeland, designer Adam Selman, and a bevy of models including Jordan Dunn, Winnie Harlow, and Anna Cleveland. They all packed into the intimate Moroccan-themed Soho nightclub as waitresses passed out heart-shaped lollipops and string of black vinyl bracelets.

Oh, what, wow! She’s the greatest dancer. Or at least one of them at the disco-fueled dance party on Friday night.

Fiorucci was the go-to wardrobe choice for many a disco party in the ’70s, so it’s only natural that the DJ played a set heavy on vintage disco.
