Forget One Direction fandom, the best kind of music and fashion relationship would be something iconic, like The Beatles. Today we heard that Bloomingdales have snapped up the opportunity to celebrate Brit pop and the 50th anniversary of Beatlemania. The American department store plans to unite British fashion brands; Paul Smith, Burberry and Alexander McQueen. What a way to create a tribute to Beatlemania, we hope we get an invite to this one !
Exclusive Beatles merchandise has been designed by Ted Baker, Thomas Pink, Ben Sherman, Crombie and Smart Turnout. The Beatles released I Wanna Hold Your Hand in the US in December 1963. Bloomingdale’s said: ‘This is an ode to the 50th anniversary of the Beatles in the US and part of a wider programme celebrating British style.’
Something else to get excited about is a series called ‘Talk is Chic’ which will feature interviews with designer Sir Paul Smith and Burberry’s chief creative officer Christopher Bailey discussing the Beatles’ impact on fashion. This looks bloomin marvelous.
