Turban Outfitters

This girl Shingal is lead singer with THE NOISETTES. She has a great singing voice -  check out "I'll Never Forget You" on YouTube if you don't know their music! What I really love is the way she dresses especially the turban!

Another current great turban wearer is Rihanna.

Eat My Playsuit

Here is a Woolly Playsuit (featuring loads of Bart Simpsons) that appeared in the Sunday Times Style Magazine last weekend (15.04.2012)

It reminded me of the blue stripe woolly playsuit I designed for Bus Stop in the 70's, shown here in Nova Magazine in 1972

The Onesie - a Jumpsuit in disguise?

There seems to be an up and coming trend for "ONESIES", rather like Babygrows for grownups. They remind me very much of 1970s jumpsuits.

Here are 2 of my 1970's jumpsuits, which actually could still be worn now (if we had them!).

And here is Joan Collins back then wearing that jumpsuit in Black crepe printed with half moons. All these photos are from my book Bus Stop.

I didn't do clothes for men, but I wanted to share with you this ad for a man's 1970s jumpsuit, from the wonderful Retronaut website - the 1970s advertising copy is something I'm delighted has not come back into fashion!
