Jeanseberg_medium

Peter Pan collars? Check. Marinière stripes? Double check. French New Wave films of the 1960s, a decade that began in black and white, introduced us to a fresh new look in both cinema and fashion. Similar to Swinging Sixties London, it was a time when art, music, youthful iconoclasm, and fashion all converged. Style icons embodying the French ‘effortless chic’ aesthetic – several of whom who also had careers as pop singers – continue to dot mood boards and wield influence on runway looks of designers such as Jason Wu and John Galliano for Christian Dior.

The late Sixties to early Seventies was certainly an eventful period. It was filled with unprecedented cultural shifts, rebelliousness and liberation, and ultimately a new era of expression. Free love and peace signs appeared in abundance, and singer-songwriters poured their hearts out over strummed guitars and self-penned lyrics.
