Sending post has never been so chic. Last week the Giles for Smythson collaboration was released and today even the classic postage stamp gets a cool make over.
The Royal Mail today launched the 'British Design Classic' stamps featuring famous items by creative Brits from concorde to the Routemaster bus to the mini skirt! Mary Quant, who is widely credited with creating the clothing item is very honoured to be chosen for the stamps where one of her favourite designs, the banana split dress, is featured.
This weekend Mary put a positive spin on the recession commenting, "The energy comes when you need it. I think out of this recession we'll get enormous energy and a lot of new ideas. You create things when you're deprived of them - that's what I did [in the early sixties]. There will be all sorts of new and exciting things which will grow out of this time now."
