Youthquakers

The name of the musthave DiorColorQuake refers to the ‘Youthquakers’. The term originated in 1965, put together by the former editor of Vogue Us, Diana Vreeland. With this term, Vreeland referred to a generation of progressive women and young adults in Great Britain. This movement within pop culture craved innovative fashion and more freedom.

“Personality was the focus of attention during the 1960s. For the first time, mannequins became real individuals. It was an era of great projects and creativity in which women invented themselves.”

Diana Vreeland

Creative director at Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri, was inspired by the fashion and style icons from that time. The clothing of the Youthquakers was cheerful, playful and sometimes a bit androgynous. Think of the miniskirt, the trouser suit, the jumpsuit, but also vividly colored pieces were all the rage.

The era gave birth to a mix of styles: mod, space age and hippie style. Well-known faces such as Twiggy, Edie Sedgwick or Jean Shrimpton were showing on the cover of large magazines like Vogue. Pop icons such as The Beatles & Jimi Hendrix left their mark on the fashion trends. The energy of that young generation was a source of inspiration for great designers of that time and formed the current textile industry.
