What do we Quant? The experimental shapes and hopeful colours of 1960s fashion! When do we Quant it? Now! Postwar yet pre-hippie, the radical elegance of miniskirted mods is a pendulum that just keeps swinging...

Advances in technological fabrics, a sharp swerve towards space-age concepts, and a game-changing shot of psychedelia gave groovy London a look that was and is instantly identifiable: Carnaby Street faces, Lee Radziwill hair, Courrèges shapes, Pierre Cardin boots. The legacy of mid-century game-changers in photography – William Klein and his witty mid-century shoots for the glossies, Peter Knapp with his emancipatory dynamism and geometric élan – lives on in fashion, graphic design and typography, while fashion’s shocking break with the old reverberates on and on.

The revolution in style and society witnessed by Klein (in American Vogue) and Knapp (Elle) was no less than the emancipation of young women. These are clothes to move in, dance in – dare in. Out of the drawing room, into the streets, girls in the 1960s leapt at their chance to become radical, creative, decisive – or just be young and have fun. As ways of thinking expanded, so, too, did horizons. Once you’ve walked on the moon and invented fake fur, there’s no going back, fellow humans!
