Conran/Quant: Swinging London - A Lifestyle Revolution
Conran/Quant: Swinging London - A Lifestyle Revolution, by Geoffrey Rayner and Richard Chamberlain (hardback)
Jump back in time to Britain at the height of the Swinging Sixties, with this book that provides vital context for two of the biggest and boldest names in Mid-Century Modern style: Mary Quant, alleged mother of the miniskirt, and Terence Conran, the entrepreneur who shaped British design and lifestyle.
Friends, associates and allies in design, Quant and Conran stood at the head of an informal but influential bohemian group who steered the rudder of style during the Pop era. This book explores the contributions of designers and artists from Laura and Bernard Ashley to Eduardo Paolozzi, Nigen Henderson and Alexander Plunket Greene, all of whom were essential generators of Sixties Style.
Exhibition catalogue for Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant at Dovecot Studios 15 July 2020 – 9 January 2021. Exhibition organised by Fashion and Textile Museum London.
