60's The outfit is classy but shows off her figure well. It's a put together look and doesn't show much skin. Although she's wearing a skirt, which is classic, it's different than ones seen before. It has a bold pattern and her outfit is more expressive.
Jean Patchett by Irving Penn, Vogue UK cover, June 1950. "Black and white - more brilliant than colour; symbolic of a black andwhite season. Wide, round, level hat by Lilly Dache. Silk organdiecoat-dress: Larry Aldrich. Scarf by Kimball" (Vogue) My favourite vogue cover off all time! Black and white makes it more classy.
Cosh Boys in Notting Hill, London in 1954 wearing finger-tip length jackets of a style which immediately preceded Teddy Boy style. Note the chain attached to the belt loop, which was a direct influence from the Zoot Suit. Following on from the Spivs and during the early 1950's some teenage gangs started to appear in the East End of London and they became known as Cosh Boys.
