The show's groundbreaking and highly distinctive look was created by its executive producer, Michael Mann.
Crockett and Tubbs battled against evil Miami villains. The show had a hard edge.
Unfortunately, her character was quickly bumped off.
Here in England, Crockett and Tubbs clones abounded. Including me. Designer stubble made me look distinctly seedy - like an associate of Arthur Daley or Gilbert the alien. I was well into the "no socks" routine. Never try it with canvas shoes. Take my word for it - it's agony, rubs all the skin off your feet.
I was already into the pushed up sleeve look - and the colourful jackets were a delight, as were the exaggerated shoulders!
Miami Vice is remembered as one of the most iconic television shows of the 1980s. I'll certainly never forget the show's ultra-stylish presentation - nor the impact it had on my fashion sense!
