News-Antique.com - Jul 06,2009 - In reaction to the conservatism of the 1950s, the 1960s was an explosion of change and experimentation in art, culture, and fashion. Fashion went to the extremes during the Space Age Era with bizarre martian-like hats, heavy metal, and an unconventional usage of shiny silver fabric. Fashion icons of the era include Janis Joplin, First Lady Jackie Kennedy, sex kitten Bridget Bardot, Twiggy, and Andy Warhol’s muse Edie Sedgwick.
Fashion trends of the era coincided with social movements of the time. The Feminist Movement headed by Betty Freidan sought equality among the sexes. Likewise, London designer Mary Quant introduced the miniskirt in 1964 thus transforming female expression and reflecting the ideals of the Sexual Revolution. The Hippies were part of a counterculture movement that rejected social norms and political conservatism. They embraced social reform, experimentation, and are often associated with paisley and ethinc prints, tie-dye, and the concept of Free Love.
While the 1960s introduced social movements and fashion trends, Sweet Romance would like to introduce this stunning piece that is part of a new division called Ollipop. The Sun Glass Daisy Cuff, vibrant with oval cabochon gleam, echoes the free spirit of the 1960s with a kaleidoscope of tangerine, forest green, hot rose, olivine, warm yellow, fuchsia, ultramarine, and orchid. The daisy’s petal is comprised of colored glass jewels around a jet-black round center cabochon with a bronze metal finish. It’s groovy baby and on sale for $44!
