Interactive: Skirt & Jumper by Mary Quant
This outfit, remade in 1973, with its belt adapted to become a halter-neck fastening, is a good example of Quant's practical ingenuity and surreal vision. It suggests school uniform, beatnik bohemianism and futuristic chic; all elements of Quant's creative repertoire. It is made of natural hessian and synthetic fibres.
