Mad About Mod

Gettin' Twiggy with it

Summer is in full swing – Swinging Sixties that is. As micro-minis and platforms make yet another comeback, the op art-inspired prints of the mid-to-late ’60s also get their turn on the wheel of fashion.

Breaking loose from the prim-and-proper vibe of the ’50s, the rise of ’60s Mod culture went hand-in-hand with the women’s movement, encouraging women to redefine their place in society. And fashion played a starring role: Skirts got shorter, prints got louder, and women got bolder.

Flash-forward to modern day where these same vibrant patterns – ranging from checkerboard to retro florals to trippy geometrics – certainly live up to their statement-making origins. And that is truly groovy, baby.
