Striking and innovative, the contemporary rockers represent a constant evolution of style and creativity. Noel Gallagher, Miles Kane and Flea paved the way for this radical transformation, embracing subtle changes within their local culture to create a movement that represented the rebellious spirit of a generation, just like the progression of the classic Paisley motif throughout the years.
Oasis paved the way for the Britpop movement, playing with a balance of refined contemporary style and the gritty reality of their urban hometown, Manchester. Never one to forget his roots, Noel Gallagher became the creative force behind the band, injecting a touch of colour and pattern in to a micro-culture obsessed with grunge. This optimistic longing combined with a reverence for the past was also heralded by Miles Kane, who often mixed vintage prints amongst sharp tailoring as the front-man for The Last Shadow Puppets and The Rascals: a refreshing contrast that soon travelled and adapted across different continents. Taking inspiration from iconic rock bands of the Sixties and Seventies, the Red Hot Chili Peppers pushed the boundaries with carefully selected psychedelic elements, creating a modern interpretation of New Tradition. Revolutionary and versatile, this balance of ancient and contemporary influences never looks dated: an evolving movement that endures throughout the years.
