It was the decade of mod, hip, and cool, the Age of Aquarius, and the beginning of a surge in fashion that still echoes throughout today’s pop culture. It was the 1960s.
London in the ‘60s was the hub for fashion, and one 16-year-old girl – who many say was the original IT girl – shaped style with her high fashion clothes, makeup, and jewelry, became the icon of the 60s. That girl was TWIGGY.
As my followers know, 1960s fashion icons have long been an inspiration for my designs. Twiggy is no exception. Her name immediately evokes a visual of wide eyes, heavy makeup, cropped hair, a boyish figure, chic clothing and oversized jewelry that gave her a look of distinction and enduring style. She epitomized her look of streamlined, androgynous sex appeal that has remained unmatched.
The Twiggy Mod Pearl Ball Earrings by Steve Sasco Designs are high retro style, vibrant and fun, and reminiscent of Carnaby Street and Swinging Sixties London. Wear them and feel like one the Beautiful People.
