An original paper carrier bag from Gear, Tom Salter's Carnaby Street boutique, featuring a Union flag design, c. 1965.

Approx. 35x30cm. Mounted, framed and glazed (frame measures 50x44cm.). Unexamined out of frame; colours slightly faded; light scratches to frame.


Gear's merchandise and packaging capitalised on the current fashion for the British flag (a symbol of 'Swinging' London since Kit Lambert's Union Flag jacket of 1964), most famously in their Michael English-designed sunglasses that featured a Union Jack underlay printed across the lenses.
