They have been selling 1960s styles for some time, but now the Dorian Boutique has its own collection for sale.

Tip of the hat for Claudio at DNA Groove for flagging up the store on social media. Hopefully, you appreciate the work that Dorian Boutique is doing here, offering up a stylishly ‘60s range of clothes that works for both formal and casual wear.

Not that the retailer is all about the 1960s. After starting what was a 1960s-focused store in Paris, Archibald Mark moved to Montreal and opened the Dorian Boutique, which is described as a ‘space dedicated to the golden age of European chic’.

Archibald Mark is also responsible for much of the clothing you see here and very hip images that promote the label.

The designs on offer within the new store are inspired by cool European looks from the 1920s through to the 1960s, although the latter part of that period seems to be most represented, which is why I am talking it up.

Some labels are featured in the store and if you look down the page you might recognise clothing from places like the Marmalade Shop and DNA Groove – labels that are no strangers to these pages.

But the bulk of the clothing here is from that new Dorian limited edition range. Made exclusively in Italy and Spain for the store and in very small quantities, these are clothing designs that echo the 1960s without going over the top about it.

The kind of clothes that echo the early mod scene and French New Wave cinema (which obviously inspired the mods of the early 1960s).

There is a lot to take in here, but the range and the photos on the page includes the Lola sweater, the Domino short sleeve cardigan, the Agnes straight skirt, the Paula cigarette trousers, the Olimpia pencil skirt, the Agnes straight skirt, the Patricia high waisted cigarette trousers and much more besides, as well as colour variations of those pieces.

Prices vary as you might expect and as limited edition pieces, they don’t come cheap. But to give you a rough guide on that front, the knitwear comes in at just over £100, the skirts around £120 and the trousers in the region of £140.

But do check out the Dorian Boutique website for all the prices to see the full range of clothing.
