Tomorrow is the day, our first Biba Blog series and we're so, so excited! Tune in via our Newsletter for early updates, interviews and stories...
Hello and welcome to our latest collection, a work in progress for the past 2 years and one of THE hardest secrets to keep!
Just one of our main inspirations, that's all!
You may be familiar with the store Biba from London 1960's & 70's... if not, it was a wonderland, empire of gorgeous clothing and helped break in SO many styles that we still wear today... mini skirts, high knee boots, bohemian, flowing garments and amazing colours & textures!
Behind the scenes was the main founder and designer, Barbara Hulanicki. In our books she's the Mick Jagger of the fashion world!
In the next few weeks will be posting snippets and stories from Barbara all about that time period, dressing everyone from Twiggy to Sonny and Cher as well as the amazing way she designed and produced her garments.
For now, enjoy our collaboration collection with here and you can find a past blog post on her here!!
Biba Boutique is next on our 'Babe's Who Inspire Us' blog! At the helm of this bohemian wonderland was Barbara Hulanicki - I'm not sure who inspires us more, the babe behind it all or the power her boutique had over the late 60's fashion scene in London... perhaps both!
Biba Boutique was a unique mix of Art Nouveau decor and Rock and Roll decadence based on Kensington High Street in London. This was the late 60's when Beatle-babes and models such as Brigitte Bardot, Twiggy and Pattie Boyd were covered in Biba goodies from head to toe.
Here our some of our favourite images of the Biba store and beautiful pieces purchased from there. What we'd do to own one of these!
