Everybody remembers Twiggy.
Discovered in 1966, she became not just one the most famous celebrities of the swinging sixties in London, but also a symbol feminine liberty and cool, casual fashionable style.
Her tiny frame, beautiful eyes, long lashes and short pixie crop captivated the fashion industry around the world and in only one year she had modeled in France and Japan, appearing in U.S Vogue, leading to worldwide fame.
Twiggy was very successful throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s and after abandoning her modeling career she went on to enjoy a successful screen, stage and television career.
And she continues 50 years later still working passionately with fashion – and designing her Spring-Summer collection for the iconic British high street retailer Mark & Spencer.
Full of energy and brimming with ideas, she puts all her expertise into her timeless designs. From timeless classics to must-have trend pieces the spring wardrobe created by Twiggy has a 19 piece offering comprising jeans, striped shirts and graphic knits, as well as updates like a stand-out power suit in burnt orange- everything very versatile and modern as she own.
“The trouser suit is very on trend for the season yet it never goes out of fashion,” she tells us of the hero two-piece that she says just had to be in her final edit. “It can take you to so many places; worn to the office with a smart shirt and courts, lunch at the weekend with the girls teamed with a T-shirt and trainers… it’s just the go-to outfit.”
Everything to be discovered quickly at Mark Spencer stores and online.
