Britain has been a hotbed of social tribes from long ago. Personal styles in the islands grew up to become popular at a time of large scale and exported to other countries that continue to toe nail style these external influences. Different times but all we still have much in fashion today.

Mod, the young Jimmy Cooper


Jimmy Cooper, played by Phil Daniels, became an icon of this scene by starring in 1979's role in the film Quadrophenia mod, directed by Franc Roddam. At that time the scene was living his mod revival in the British Isles after spending the fever of this subculture in the mid-60.

A style that drew one of his special passion for the best clothes possible, devoting much of their wages in low profile jobs or means to costumes elegant Italian tailors.

Of these we are left with the recovery by the military parkas, a symbol of the mod, and the like in the sixties pop scene and derived its fashion caught again we see today.

In the mid-2000s the term boho-chic began to take a big importance that everything seemed to be boho-chic and if it was, was not fashionable. A term that burned like so many other modern arising and it adds a negative connotation that originally had, when the looks of Kate Moss or Sienna Miller began to be called so.

The folk taste, a taste for mindless idea of ​​fashion but in turn studied with a combination of items to achieve this effect, and the growth of the passion to follow and copy many famous young finished defining the boho-chic that was a hybrid of many styles.
