Retro Mod 60s Handbag

If you want to go for a Mod look, and haven’t got a handbag to match, how about this Retro Mod 60s Handbag? Quite often you have to trawl the charity shops to get something with a 60s Mod feel, but this handbag is brand new and has all the […]

Uniqlo lambswool V-neck cardigan

If you don’t fancy paying just under £100 for a classic Fred Perry cardigan (and everyone needs a cardigan in their wardrobe right now), check out a budget version instead – the Uniqlo lambswool V-neck cardigan. As the name suggests, this is pure lambswool, with a high V-neck, 6 black […]

Absolute Beginners: The Play

Colin MacInnes’ tale of the teenager at the turn of the sixties  – Absolute Beginners – has already been a novel and a (widely panned) film. And now it’s set to be a play, debuting at London’s Lyric Theatre. Details are so far quite sparse, but according to web sources: […]

Spencer Davis Group in London

I’ve no idea who is actually in the Spencer Davis Group right now (well, Mr D is in and Stevie Winwood isn’t – that’s for sure), but if you want to catch them on a rare UK date, you can see the band at London’s 100 Club on Saturday 3rd […]
