A Peek at the Boutique: Alice Pollock’s Circus

1970s, alice pollock, british boutique movement, harpers and queen, quorum, Tony McGee
Alice Pollock, enfant terrible of the Sixties, opens Circus, 304A Fulham Road, SW10. The shop is a glorious Gitanes blue painted with sad/happy clowns by Sally Miles (she will work to commission). Behind the laughing faces Alice create her new collection, on sale this summer in stores and boutiques.

I was always curious about what Alice Pollock got up to in her post-Quorum days. Now I know a little more, although of course this is the only reference to Circus I’ve ever seen.

Scanned from Harpers and Queen, January 1977.
