The Spirit of London




















Biba’s in-house graphic designer, Kasia Charko, has her own blog which acts as a sort of online historical archive for the brand. It’s a treasure trove for vintage Biba products and advertising and shares all the insider gossip on working for Biba alongside Barbara until the store’s untimely closure. There’s also a documentary worth seeing called  Beyond BibaA Portrait of Baraba Hulanicki

D E S I G N  •  D U O Marget Larsen and Betty Brader .................................................... In the 1950s Marget Larsen took a job at Joseph Magnin, the “hip” department store that was responding to the young, post-war,  baby-boomer consumer. 







Larsen was hired by JM’s visionary founder, Cyril Magnin, who teamed her with in-house advertising manager Toni Harley and illustrator Betty Brader. 


Together they transformed the bland and tasteful retail fashion advertising into bold, colourful, dynamic ads that made both shoppers and designers look twice.
