Here’s a biggy. Deep breath. Are you sitting down? Okay…
Here at “Blink” we think that the 60’s are going to be the new 80’s!
Yes, the next style era that will be plundered, replicated, referenced and re-lived will be the ‘Swinging Sixties’. This may well bring a sigh of relief for many of you who have pretty much exhausted all of the inspiration that the Eighties could provide. It’s been feeling right for us for some time now, and the momentum is building- as is our urge to wear Chelsea boots! When we went to see ‘An Education’ the other week, it sealed the deal. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, do see it. From a style perspective it’s faultless- even if the story seems to run out of steam 3/4’s of the way through.
We were flicking through some family snaps the other day and came across the perfect (if self indulgent) way to illustrate this mood. Here are some inspiring pictures from a very significant event in 1964. These are from the engagement party of Blink’s very stylish parents. Without this event, “Blink” wouldn’t even exist!
