VW camper Van Tent for the Retro-Warrior

Today ,Firebox announces the arrival of the Peppermint Green VW Camper Van Tent.  Last year ,we featured the original VW Camper Van Tent when Firebox launched the full size replica of the legendary 1965 camper van to worldwide acclaim. This brand new addition to the range will surely turn heads across festivals this summer as mint green is set to be the summer trend. Say goodbye to dull, conventional tents and be make your friends green with envy.

This is the ‘tent that thinks it a camper van.’ It was ,claims Firebox, the retailer’s most successful product launch.

Officially licensed, the four-man tent is a luxe, full-size replica of the legendary 1965 VW  redolent of 1960’s hippies, surfer dudes and boho culture. Not only is the tent large enough for campers to stand up in but it’s incredibly sturdy and brilliantly weather proof too – with a 3000mm fabric roof (British Military grade is only 800mm) and 1000mm thick fabric side.

Firebox says: “The latest, perfectly-on-trend, Peppermint Green tent version of the 1965 VW Camper Van is expected also to be a hit and join its colourful companions across festivals and campsites this summer.”

As they say : “Here comes Summer.”

Biba Women – Dresses

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the High Street was populated with great visual diversity not least from the likes of Biba which had a flagship store in London until its closure in 1975. While the retail outlet founded by Barbara Hulanicki may have long gone her legacy fashion statement clothes for women have not. The Biba look of ‘ elegance with attitude’ continues today , and you can buy into a piece of it at House of Fraser.

Biba took a ‘retro’ move away from the earlier sixties styles, and took inspiration from Art Nouveau in particular; the iconic Biba  logo in gold with its celtic interlacing swirls hinted at what the customer should expect ,with echos of earlier designers of the likes of Aubrey Beardsley and Alphonse Mucha.
