Imagine how your life would be in London during the 50's...
Teddy boys and girls photographed by Ken Russell.
Now imagine you are back in June 2007 and
you see this editorial from Vogue Nippon.
I can't stop thinking about that movement called the Teddy boys
and all its influence on future cultural movements, such as the mods, rockers...
During the 1970's, rockabilly music gained a lot of popularity
and showed a great interest in the Teddy Boy style.
The look was taken up by Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren
through their shop 'Let it Rock' on London's Kings Road.
And now thanks to brands like Dolce&Gabbana,
Prada, Sonia Rykiel, Comme des Garcons...
the revival of that age is possible,
and the return of the creepers is now a reality.
We've been seing them a lot during this summer in blogs, magazines...
but the thing is they were always here, they never disappear...
And these are my favourite creepers.
What do you think? Do you like them?
Would you wear them?
