Ossie Clark: The King of King’s Road Reigns Again

21st February 2013

Chelsea’s LFW survivors were out in force last night at Proud Chelsea to celebrate the relaunch of the label Ossie Clark London with a retrospective of Clark’s contemporaries featuring unseen photography by Norman Parkinson, Robert Whitaker, Jim Lee, Eric Swayne, Romano Cagnori and co. Although the painterly theatrics of Parkinson are perhaps the most widely associated with the designer, it’s the more documentary style black and white shots by Terry O’Neill, Romano Cagnori and Eric Swayne that really capture the zeitgeist of Seventies King’s Road. Look out for O’Neill’s snap of Jane Shrimpton sauntering barefoot down the street, Cagnori’s Birkin and Eric Swayne’s portrait of Ossie himself.

The free exhibition runs until 10 March
