MODERNISTS

MOD CULTURE

2

Get set to dress like one of the boys - like a rebelliousy clad Ted back in the 60’s! For AW11, sleek tailoring, geometric patter knits and brothel creepers have been given a modern, punk Super slim cigarette trousers in ankle-skimming lengths com jacquards, sheer shirts are worn with neckties and buttoned u while polo necks are tucked into high-waist pencil skirts and polka dot court shoes. But the standout New Mod pieces th should have are the ones that combine unexpected fabric wool crombie coats with leather inserts, classic sweatshirts mixed faux fur. In the begining, Mod culture and Mod style was dominated by men. From 1960, women slowly started to become interested in Mod life and by 1963 were setting thier own Mod trends. One of the most important designers of womens Mod clothing was Mary Quant. She had opened her first boutique in 1955, in the Kings Road, Chelsea - another location that became famous for Mod clothing boutiques and designers. Her second was opened in Knightsbridge in 1961. Famous for designing many iconic Mod garments, it is probably the revolutionary Mini Skirt for which Mary Quant will be remembered. Hemlines had been creeping up since about 1958, and in 1963 were just above the knee. By 1965, a hemline five inches above the knee was not uncommon. Quant invented them, but it was the sixties boutique, Biba that put them on to the high street and into Mod fashion.

THE MOD SHIFT DRESS WAS ALSO A STAPLE OF ANY MOD GIRLS WARDROBE. A STRAIGHT DRESS WITHOUT A WAIST, MADE OF ALMOST ANY PATTERN AND COLOUR, IT WAS THE OP-ART INFLUENCED, BLACK AND WHITE DESIGNS THAT BECAME THE MOST ICONIC AND PERHAPS THE MOST MOD STYLES. THIS STRAIGHT STYLE DRESS REMOVED MUCH OF THE FEMINITY FROM A TRADITIONAL DRESS DESIGN, MAKING IT THE QUINTESSENTIAL MOD WOMANS DRESS. MOST WOMENS MOD CLOTHING IS ANDROGENOUS IN STYLE, OR MASCULINISED AS MALE FASHIONS WERE FEMINISED. WOMEN WORE FLAT SHOES, TROUSERS SUCH AS THE DRAINPIPE JEANS THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY ONLY WORN BY MEN AND SHIRTS AND SWEATERS THAT MATCHED OR IN FACT WERE MENS.
