Want to know the hippest spots of London's swinging fashion scene? You need a copy of The Gear Guide, dating to 1967, which has been recently republished.
Daring retro-inspired lingerie brand Sugarlesque are relative newcomers to the thriving faux-vintage undies scene but with their first store opening in Kingly Court, the hub of the ever popular Carnaby Street, they’re no doubt going to turn a few heads.
Over on our His Knibs site, we have a review of a book heading your way in a couple of days – Boutique London A History: King's Road to Carnaby Street by Richard Lester.
The title probably says it all. Published by ACC Ediitons, this 192-page book is part tourist guide from a bygone era, part history and part coffee table glossy, taking in retailers big and small from the early 60s to the mid-70s, but primarily focusing on swinging London at its height.
Check out the review now, with the book going on sale on September 30th 2010.
If you are lookng for something interesting and with a retro twist to get your teeth into, we have two candidates newly-reviewed on our Modculture site – King of Carnaby Street by Jeremy Reed and The Big Beat Scene by Royston Ellis.
The first of those is a biography on that king of Carnaby Street, John Stephen. It's the story of his arrival in London, how we learned the basics of clothes making and retailing and of course, how he went on to dominate both Carnaby Street and men's fashion in the 1960s and early 1970s.
The Big Beat Scene by Royston Ellis is a reissue from 1961, described as 'an outspoken expose of the teenage world of rock 'n' roll' by 'the king of the beatniks', 19-year-old Ellis. You can read reviews of both books in the Modculture books section right now.
