Another new T-Shirt in the design process is our Lambretta Scooter ad. The picture was taken in the early 60s with movie goddess Jayne Mansfield adding a touch of glamour to the image. She reminds us of the late 70s/early 80s when a few girls would dress in European labels in a similar vein to their match going brothers or boyfriends. A tight fit jumper, usually French Connection would be worn with narrow jeans, probably Lois, Inega or Fiorucci. The ubiquitous Kickers topped off the early Continental look.
The 125 Lambretta and Northern Soul clenched fist cross references the sub-culture cross over in the late 60s from Mod to Northern Soul. Both very much a part of British cultural history and periods which influence us through their design and fashion.
The T-Shirt will be in stores during September.
