In the mid 1960s, thanks to a convergence of music, film, fashion and social change, the mod style blasted out of London, with the boutiques of Kings Road and Carnaby Street at the center of the scene. The monochrome geometric prints of Op Art perfectly complemented the bold shapes of the mod look, which was about looking forward to the future: sharp, bold, minimalist – mod-ernist.

By the late 60s the mod scene was in sharp decline. However, starting in the 70s each decade experienced a wave of mod revival. In the 90s bands such as Oasis and Blur were influenced by the mod culture; both in music and fashion. In 2010 The Like adopted the mod joyful style and unconventional stance.

This spring, Dori, Marc Jacobs, Moschino and other designers channeled the ’60s mod vibe and flavor in their new collections.
