Winter Trends – The Mary Quant revival

It seems designers have taken a page out Mary Quant’s, design book this year, with the revival of the 60’s mod style. The British fashion designer of the 1960’s has influenced designers countless times over the years, with some elements featuring on the catwalks for Winter 2011/12.

Burberry, Prada and and Yves Saint Laurent (to name a few) have worked some of Mary Quant’s design aesthetic into their ranges, as well as other 60’s influences such as capes, swing coats and graphic prints, and bright block colours. Here are some images below for some inspiration on how to dress for this trend this season…
