We might need to cast our minds back a few years to 2014 when singer and musician Taylor Swift released her latest single, Style. This was about to bring James Dean’s name back to life. Her line talking about the “James Dean daydream look in your eye” was all most people needed to research the elusive character, and suddenly a whole new generation of James admirers were created.
Of course, all the popularity soon meant that companies wanted to cash in on their own slice of James Dean, Dolce and Gabbana were some of the many to release a line of James Dean inspired merchandise as well as opening a bar in Prague. Tragically, the star was just 24 years old when he lost his life in 1955. The actor was in California when he was involved in a fatal automobile crash, but his legacy continues to shine.
