For her window display at the Fiorucci boutique, shape-shifting performer and installation artist Colette brought the contemporary punk movement into conversation with the Victorian era of late-19th-century Britain. In 1979, she self-released the disco-punk single “Beautiful Dreamer” under the name Justine and the Victorian Punks.
