Simpli Mod is a VRS Design’s distinctive model which represents and depicts a certain type of culture for the first time
‘Mod’ is included in category of subculture which was widely spread throughout United Kingdom in 1960s and also other European countries, (even United States as a part of British Invasion). Rejecting older generation’s dull and old-fashioned style and culture, Mod is a group of stylish London-based young man who enjoy particular genres of music; modern jazz, soul, and R&B and classic outfits ; tailor suits. Further they were always with an Italian style motorbike.
Style of Mod
It is difficult and never easy to explain a certain cultural form in single sentence, as Mod is also mixed with various modes of style. It is a mixture of existing styles, symbols and artefacts in nontraditional way. For example, majority of mods adopted new Italian or French styles for sophisticate and dandy looking with-
customising tailor-made suits with narrow lapels (sometimes made of mohair), thin ties, button-down collar shirts, wool or cashmere jumpers (crewneck or V-neck), Chelsea or Beatle boots, loafers, Clarks desert boots, bowling shoes, and hairstyles that imitated the look of French Nouvelle Vague film actors. *(Casburn, Melissa M., A Concise History of the British Mod Movement)
Mods in the other hand, went with an opposite style using a make-up kit; eye shadow or lipsticks for gender blurring.
Mods also kept them away from a pub where was a centre of traditional gathering place for English working class. They rather gathered at a coffee bar where was a new venue for trendy young people from diverse backgrounds. The place often came with jukeboxes that made it possible to bring one’s own vinyl for jazz and R&B music so that it was a perfect place for building mode for Mods.
Most interestingly, Mods who are dressed in dandy suits, they tended to cover their clothes with a military parka for the purpose of keeping their clothes clean from dust and oil also for same reason, their scooters are concealing wheels and all other moving parts. Further, this sort of motorbike is a symbol of Italian style just accordingly with their way of fashion.
