Rebel Rebel: The Students of Burgess Hill

The Daily Mail posted some cool archival footage of Burgess Hill, an experimental 1960s British boarding school that let students do whatever they wanted.

What I was most struck by, however, was the pupils' killer style. Motorcycle leather, black sweaters, and brightly-coloured skirts make for a mod look soaked in teen rebellion.

Can't you see some indie fashion mag using this as fashion-spread fodder?
