Gallery label
Sally Tuffin and Marion Foale opened their Carnaby Street boutique in 1961. Highly talented colourists, the designers were celebrated for their unusual combinations of patterned fabrics, often Liberty designs, and playful cut. Jill wore the collarless shirt and trousers with a jacket from Yves Saint Laurent for a less flamboyant look.(2008)
