Style Icon #3:Mary Quant

We have a lot to thank Mary Quant for, most notably her popularization of the mini skirt in “swinging sixties” London. When you think of 1960’s style you think of Mary Quant. Bright colors, simple lines—slightly adolescent looking, futuristic PVC coats and dresses. She was the first to design all of these. And she was one of the first to sport the Vidal Sassoon asymmetric bob, which I’ve always wanted (but a mass of super curly hair won’t let me have) So kudos to you MQ, I don’t know where I would be without a closet full of minis!
