Young people didn’t want to dress or shop like their parents in dull department stores so John Stephen created individual small boutiques with different names.
Shops included The Mod Male, His Clothes, Trecamp, Male W.1., Domino Male, Drugstore, The Village Store, Teenstore, as well as stores with his own name on them such as The John Stephen Trouser Bar, Girls Shop, and Mans Shop. He also established a factory in Glasgow to keep up with the demand for his clothing in his own boutiques and across the world.
He spotted trends before his customers knew what they really wanted – when he saw young men pulling their collars up and trousers down, he produced jackets with high collars and low-rise hipster strides.
It was his forward-thinking that made his shops the destination for young Mods and earned him the nickname “The Million Pound Mod”, a title he played up to, parking his Rolls Royce outside his shops.
Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
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).
