it reminds me of swinging London.
The magnificent Zandra Rhodes retrospective at the Galleria Carla Sozzani (until October 30th) soooooooo reminded me of swinging London, of Barbara Hulanicki and Abingdon Road, the first Biba shop, of John, Paul, George and Ringo, of Mick and his "I can't get no....", of Sir Peter Blake and his colorful Babe Rainbow and of the swimming pools of David Hockney. Zandra is renowned for her brilliantly colorful screen-printed and hand-decorated textiles, her bizarre garments shown here include the celebrated Dinosaur coat and a punk wedding dress. It's fantasy in abundance, it's fashion inspiration for all and it's out of this world! In 1997 in recognition of her contribution to the fashion and textile industry she was made Commander of the British Empire. She is as colorful in her person as her textiles.
