“The simple mini dress is a must- have for effortlessly modern '60s chic.”
“Add a hint of pink with a
barely there lip.”
“Neutral flats offset a shorter hemline.”
With its clean palette, simple shapes and thigh-grazing hemlines, mid-’60s style continues to enthrall, emerging once again as a key influence for the fashion season ahead.
This week’s cover star, the impossibly leggy Liv Tyler, showcases the trend’s most covetable pieces – the short shift, the oversized knit, and that exquisite ballet-pink Rochas coat. On the eve of the publication of her and her grandmother’s etiquette book, Modern Manners, the actress talks about the men in her life, why it always pays to be polite and her own exciting next chapter.
With shorter hemlines taking center stage, Christa D’Souza fearlessly asks: should there be an age limit to a mini? And we take a trip to the Leg School in Capri
in our quest for pin perfection – yes, it does exist. The Edit also meets one of the most memorable faces of the ’60s, model and enduring muse Penelope Tree, who talks about being discovered by Diana Vreeland, and her era-defining relationship with David Bailey.
