We love to Jitterbug

The dance craze that evolved in Harlem in the 1920’s and 30’s has been taking contemporary club culture by storm with Lindy nights in full swing up and down the country…last year at Bestival Olive and I took part in a Lindy Hop and Charleston classes and loved every minute of it…when I have a spare moment I have been known to go to a Swing Cats night in London and if I had a regular night to myself that is where I would head….it’s always interesting to see how vintage revivials have an influence on contemporary culture…check out the video to one of my favourite Parov Stelar tracks Chambermaid Swing and I defy you not to want to get up and start dancing around your kitchen….

I was very happy to see that the Jitterbug made it’s way onto one of the  new photographic print from the Molo SS 2012 collection…in store now at Olive Loves Alfie.
