CURL UP WITH MARY QUANT

21.10.12

Following a day on the King's Road yesterday at the Saatchi Gallery, today we look to another King's Road legend, Mary Quant, for a bit of fash-spiration. Taking refuge on our sofas, we've curled up with the 1966 re-release of Quant by Quant, the autobiography of Mary Quant from her early years in fashion.

Originally penned by Mary back in 1966, the book follows Quant's early years, from growing up during the war to meeting her husband and the opening of her boutique, Bazaar, on the King's Road in the mid-Fifties.

It then goes on to catalogue Mary's life during the Swinging Sixties surrounded by Pop culture and the inspirations which helped MQ become such an iconic designer of the time.

Written in a playful, easy-to-read tone, the only difference between this edition and the original is a foreword by Mary and a brand new front cover.

Instantly transporting you back to the Swinging Sixties with Mary and the King's Road clan, this is a page-turning read for retro enthusiasts, fashion fans and Londoners alike.
