Vintage Photos Capture The Fabulous London Streetstyle In The 1960s

London was a city full of clashing cultures in the 1960s, with the Mods, Swingers and Hippies facing off against the squares and the staunchly aristocratic Brits who wanted to keep England properly uptight.

This clash often spilled out onto the streets of Piccadilly Circus and Soho, where the swinging scene was all "yeah, baby, yeah!" while the button down Brits muttered "oh no" to themselves and scowled at all the freaks.

But then Twiggy came along and put London fashion on the map, forcing the button down Brits to admit the new subculture-inspired modern fashions could be quite pleasing to the eye.

In the end diversity made London a better place, and even though they hated to admit it uptight Brits actually learned a thing or two from the Swingers about loosening up, having fun and not taking themselves too seriously.

I lived and worked in London from 1965 until 1972. Believe me, nobody, but nobody, dressed like that! Unless it was for a bet or to get a gullible reporter to do a "fashion shoot" about trendy London.
