1950s clothing styles have been coming back in a big way but now it's time for 60s-era mod fashion to experience a comeback, which is demonstrated in the 'Brazil Dazzle' editorial for How to Spend It, a branch of the Financial Times.
Large hoop earrings, cat's-eye sunglasses and bold prints occupy the editorial, reminiscent of London's mod fashion era in the 1960s. Styled by Damian Foxe this spread highlights the use of vibrant colors and A-line shapes to transport the viewer back 50 years.
One outfit in particular uses the mod style to great effect. The model is seen wearing a brown and white checkered skirt and crop top, her hair in a sleek ponytail and her eyes covered by white cat's-eye sunglasses. The look is a clear nod to the 1960s and an indication that perhaps the 20s and 50s style comebacks are fading out and the strikingly confident 60s fashions are becoming mod once more.
