Few trends have as long a shelf life as mod, though it could be because this ’60s trend is the style that never actually goes out of style.
In 1995, Marc Jacobs told Vogue that the sixties was the most “modern period in fashion,” and that “if I saw those clothes walking down the street today, I would say they looked modern, experimental and classic.” This was, of course, during a time when mod was having yet another resurgence, but the point remains. A shift dress never seems to go the way of the Dodo.
The ’60s youthquake hit fall collections like Prada, Burberry Prorsum, Alberta Ferretti, and Jil Sander, showing clean lines, bright colors and the occasional crazy headgear. Fashion editors are translating them to magazine pages at an alarming rate, and we can’t get enough of it.
Last fall saw a focus on the 50s bombshell, while the present takes inspiration from Twiggy. Is the 70s set for next year? Time will tell on that one, but for now click through to take a look at some of the standout mod editorials for fall.
