Children of the Revolution

Mon 12 Sep 2011

Children of the Revolution

To kick start London Fashion Week this Friday, we're opting for the ultimate in sixties style for our front row appearance. Taking inspiration from the legendary Twiggy, London's super cool street chic and baby doll silhouettes for the children of the revolution; designers such as Bottega Veneta, Burberry Prorsum and Prada made the sixties key trend a theme in their a/w 11 collections to follow.

Day dresses
It's not enough that mini dresses and flares were the new looks to note, as the return of the peter pan collar has firmly made itself the essential buy of the season to nail sixties chic. Colour blocking also comes alive and lights up those cloudy days with bursts of orange, pinks and greens on single pieces to compliment autumn's shedding leaves.

For a play on the boy/girl style, make like Twiggy's iconic look and go for a short cropped haircut to highlight your cheeks for strong definition. We're loving this trend at Lipsy HQ and with our day dresses echoing the swinging sixties, we've nodded to the mod style this season to get the look in high fashion.
