Swinging Sixties

LOOKS FROM THE 2011 RUNWAYS

Swinging London was born out of the happy 60’s.The centre of where it was all happening was Carnaby street-the place where everyone wanted to be seen, from mods and pop stars to hippies and designers.

60s WITH A MODERN 2011 LOOK

Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti

Mary Quant  the marvellous woman who invented the mini skirt had a shop there and around the corner was the Marquee Club, where the Rolling Stones, The Who and Jimi Hendrix all played. Fashion wise the look was graphic in colour and cut. Inspired by shrunken English school uniforms think along the lines of miniskirts,calf length trousers, club stripes,tweeds with a white shirt and tie.

The mod style is always a winner and to get it right you need a clever mix of slim tailoring, pointed shoes teamed with a parka and duffel coat. The perfect formula for Spy’s mod tailoring-shift dresses, graphic prints and cat’s eyes rule!
