The Fab Four did a lot more than revolutionize our sonic legacy—they also left a mark on our closets. Phyllis Magidson, curator of costumes and textiles at the Museum of the City of New York, and Barbara Cohen-Stratyner, curator of exhibitions at the NYPL for the Performing Arts, discuss how the lads from Liverpool held sway over fashion trends on both sides of the pond. Topics include the mop top, the Carnaby Street look, mod and Teddy Boy trends, as well as the influence of stylish other halves Yoko Ono and Pattie Boyd.
