Group of four pop art prints from The King of Carnaby Street collection.
“He made Carnaby Street. He was Carnaby Street. He invented a look for young men which was wildly exuberant, dashing and fun.” Mary Quant
Including a print of the King & Queen of Mod fashion meeting during an overseas trip to promote British fashion, featuring John Stephen & Mary Quant within a red & blue bullseye, the roundel symbol of the mods.
John Stephen photographed “faces-about-town” in his clothing for the press to feature, including Robin Steadman, a hairstylist from the House of Leonard (the Mayfair salon famous for creating Twiggy’s Mod hairstyle), and Peter Hinwood, an art student who later went on to star as the muscled Rocky in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” in 1975.
As well as modelling John Stephen’s clothes in press photos, Peter appeared in swimming trunks on the walls of a dressing room in the girl’s shop Trecamp, as seen in the 1960s satirical farce “Smashing Time” which featured Valerie Leon in her first film role.

An official collaboration with the estate of John Stephen, this print is part of the new collection of stylish pop art prints, exclusively by Art & Hue, inspired by John Stephen of Carnaby Street and features Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books).
