Paisley Silk Scarves
The Mod (short for ‘modernist’) style first became popular in London in the early 1960s, centred around the famous Carnaby Street scene. It was all about music and the tailor-made suits. A step forward from the ‘old-fashioned’ 1950s, mods were the new cool kids, keeping it neat, streamlined and smart. This style has been carried on through the years, and although slight adaptations have been made, it still remains a pretty original look.
The RAF Roundel symbol became the iconic Mod symbol, which was quickly followed by Paisley Scarves. These Aviator style scarves were
a big favourite of the Mods in the Nineteen Sixties. Then again in the late seventies and early eighties, largely due to the cult movie phenomenon Quadrophenia, and have also recently become popular as an Indie Music Clothing Accessory.
