FALL / WINTER 2022
READY, STEADY, GO!
SHOP LIMITED EDITION CONCERT MERCH
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
I am crushing over “Ready, Steady, Go!,” a British rock show from the 60s! Bands like the Beatles and the Stones playing toe-to-toe with dancing mods, fresh from Carnaby Street with a bit of homespun thrown in! The “IT” girl, Cathy McGowan, with her Vidal Sassoon haircut, knee high boots, and Mary Quant clothes, chatting it up with The Who, the Animals, and the Kinks! Airing Friday nights from a soundstage in London, throbbing crowds of cool kids and cameras mixed with unknown bands that soon became number one in England! As the catchline claimed: “the weekend starts here!”
Sixties Mod has always reminded me of 20s Deco and 80s Nuwave – just like “RSG!” there is a great energy when you mingle it all together! That’s what I did for this season and I had fun with every detail. There’s Deco neckties with schoolgirl dresses; paillettes to party in; coats with matching miniskirts in knit, tweed, granny crocheted squares. Fun faux fur comes in zebra and shaggy; genderless vibrant power plaid blazers mixed with two-tone Nuwave sweaters and black patent pants are punked out with belts, badges, and pop jewelry; topped off with balaclavas, creepers and après ski boots! And James Coviello’s famous doggy backpacks are back in new shades of tangerine dream & purple haze together with introducing lion backpacks in black!
There’s plenty more here for a Friday night including everything you might throw in, high and lo, to make a proper outfit -- all to the tune of “Ready, Steady, Go!” by Generation X!
