Well, it’s safe to say they left no Stone unturned (see what I did there) when putting together this exhibition
Over 500 original Stones artifacts from the bands fifty year history spread over the entire two floors of the Saatchi Gallery,
never before seen paraphernalia to rare instruments, iconic costumes, rare video footage & personal diaries
along side a vast array of collaboratory works by artists such as Andy Warhol, Martin Scorsese, Alexander McQueen, and the King of Kings Road Ossie Clark.
Even a recreation of Mick, Keith and Brians early 60s flat in Edith Grove, Chelsea where it looks like there were likely to be more rats than possessions in there, I bet there’s not many Chelsea flats that look like that nowadays!!
The guitars and style section is what got my heart racing, as this is a Style blog, I’m gonna talk to you a little about that.
so here it is…
There were some amazing pieces in there from the 1960s right up to Jaggers 2013 gold brocade L’ Wren Scott jacket that he wore at Hyde Park
as for the vintage pieces……… you may want to sit down for this….
Granny Takes A Trip, among them is a gorgeous jacket of Keiths, Mr. Fish, Mr. Freedom, Hung on You, Lord Kitchener Valet it goes on…. pieces from every boutique on the Kings Road & Carnaby Street in the 60s
..and these Ossie Clark jumpsuits especially made for Jagger to wear on tour (“His road manager loved that,” Ossie once said, “because you could just chuck them in the washing machine after each show”) – this gold number was worn on the 1972 America tour for ‘Exile On Main Street’ and the white was recently worn by Kate Moss for an editorial in last Mays Vogue magazine
I won’t give away too much more, because I think you need to visit this for yourselves, just for the buzzing atmosphere alone. keep your eyes and ears peeled for this if you are not local to London because I’ve heard its touring after its finished at the Saatchi Gallery.
