La Panthere Cosmique (Jean Jacques Perrey) + 1970 Mr. Freedom Fashion   

Absolutely fantastic footage from 1970 of the new Mr Freedom look in action, this clip features some of their most iconic designs..brightly coloured midi length jersey dresses, T-shirts and accessories decorated with Pop Art appliqué and Disney prints, satin hot pants, dungarees and over-sized baker boy caps. When Tommy Roberts and his partner Trevor Myles launched the Mr Freedom boutique at 430 King’s Road, their mission statement declared that it would be “A total reversal of what was being worn on the street”, and what was generally being worn on the streets in London as the 60s came to a close says Roberts ‘was an agglomeration of dreary browns’…so I think this footage is definitely proof that they succeeded, the 1970s had ‘arrived’.
