Traditionally derived from the French for flower and lily, the Fleur de Lis is a far cry from its origins once Rockins get their hands on it. Reimagined in 8-bit graphics the Fleur de Pop is a pixellated palette of neons on black and inky grey on white.The delicate French motif which has in the past been a prominent feature on imperial coats of arms has been subtly deconstructed, space raider style and scattered over our skinny and fringed scarves.As well as the classic Rockins scarves our riotous Fleur de Pop print is available on our exclusive classic ruffle shirt, with triple ripple cuffs and collar as worn by Julia Cummings for our AW17 campaign along with the Fleur De Pop classic skinny fringed scarf as below.
What a fabulous turn out at Park Chinois we had on Tuesday night for the launch of our Pop Up Shop in Selfridges.It was a gorgeous balmy night and lots of our friends rocked up in their new silk PJs and Mainline collection.
Wild Daughter played a mega set while the mesmerizing Harry Alexander of Michael Clark school of dance threw some incredible shapes around the stage and Simmo (Paul Simonon) Timbo and Twiggy from “Yota” played storming sets.
We had such a great night and can’t wait till the next one! Probably when we open our first London flagship store this coming Autumn….

This week we unveiled our amazing new pop-up shop in Selfridges London. As part of Selfridges Music Matters campaign where they explore the strengthening relationship between music and style, we have injected our signature Rock’n’Roll style in to their exciting store concept.
Standing out in the Denim Studio is an explosion of Rockins proportions. Racks of vibrant leopards and flame print silk shirting. Statement tees including the epic “Smoking Gun” and “Burning the candle at both ends” and our western detail denim range hang alongside sumptuous 70s velvet and corduroy suiting and look fabulous styled with this seasons corresponding classic and fringed skinny scarves.
Of course, no Rockins display would be complete without our ever-distinctive record store packaging. Super skinnies in Cassette Cases, Neckerchiefs in 10” Sleeves, Bandanas in 7” Sleeves and Classic Skinnies in CD Boxes.
With a unique cover for each individual scarf displayed on tables and lined up in cassette carousels, it’s worth heading in just to check them out.
To top it all off we’re offering an exclusive gift with purchase, a “Get yer Rockins on ” canvas tote bag with every Ready to Wear purchase. And don’t forget to pick up a free copy of RIZ our brand-zine.
Apparently there’s no smoke without a fire, so the RockinsGun printed tee must be pretty HOT!
Made from super fine knit in a washed out black the focus lies on the graphic smoking gun motif. Ideal over super skinnies or tucked into high rise denim.
Derived from origins in the Wild Wild West the smoking gun print is our subtle take on 50’s western films and authentic cowboy costumes. Leather cowboy boots are still some of our favourite footwear and you will find subtle nods to the cowboy aesthetic all the way through the RockinsScarf and Mainline collections.
Ok, maybe we draw the line at chaps and spurs (or do we?) but there are plenty less in ya face ways to style the wrangler look.
The Rockins Nomilitary shirt is another take on Western style with epaulets and contrast piping, Butch Cassidy style. But our favourite accessory and piece de resistance with the Gun Print tee, a Rockinsbandana, wear it round your neck, your waist or even your head, smoking!
Some people like to go all out, fancy dress and glitter tattoos galore. But here at Rockins we believe that keeping it simple, staying true to your style, and avoiding morph suits like the plague is the key to nailing Glasto style. So here are our style picks for this weekend, and not a feather head dress in sight!
It’s official, Glastonbury is less then a week away! The world’s most famous music and arts festival is being held from the 21st-24th of June. And so ensues the inevitable annual wardrobe dilemmas. Prepare for a mud bath or 30 degree heat? Your guess is as good as ours!
In our quest for answers here’s a look back at the festivals history and some of the best festival looks of yesteryear.
Glastonbury begun in 1970 and was originally called the “Pilton Pop, Blues and Folk Festival” attended by only 1500 people acts included Marc Bolan, The Kooks and Al Stewart.
But it was in 1971 that the true Glastonbury was born. Moved to the Summer Solstice, a time when energies from the planets, the sun and the constellations are at their height. It was a marriage of creative expression and musical freedom immersed in a cloak of mysticism that was bound by Creator Andrew Kerrs deep spiritual intensity. Focussing on music, dance, poetry, theatre and lights entertainment, it was mostly free and an “up yours” to all the overly commercialised festivals being put on at the time by money hungry promoters.
Acts that year included Joan Baez, David Bowie, Hawkwind, Fairport Convention & Traffic. We found this rare footage of those dreamy days by Nick Roeg & David Puttnam. ENJOY!

Paisley is one of the most seemingly immortal prints of our time, it has been popular in fashion for centuries and like a fine wine it just gets better with age, which would make our latest season Pine Cone Paisley scarves the best ever right?
From its Persian origins shrouded in mysterious symbolism, to adorning the necks of cowboys and bikers, to the summer of love when everyone went psychedelic paisley mad. This print with its swirling tear drops, vertiginous feather like patterns and undulating Yin and Yang-esque shapes has become a staple in all rock n roll wardrobes, and life.
So of course, no Rockins collection would be complete without our take on this powerfully flamboyant pattern. Our Pine Cone Paisley scarves come in classic and super skinny, are made from 100% Crepe de Chine and will bring any outfit to life. Drape it round your neck, sling it on your hips, or try the Lips Paisley bandana for a pouting paisley twist.
This Sunday it’s Fathers Day and all about spending quality time with the old man. Just as Mr Richards did in 1973 handing down the sticks to Marlon whilst rocking a classic super skinny.
Mum might have got a bunch of flowers, but we can go one better with the RockinsFlora Classic Fringed Scarf. Crafted from 100% Crepe de Chine silk, it is scattered with vibrant bouquets capturing the heady rock aesthetic of the 70’s and we think quite frankly, blooming brilliant.
John and Julian enjoyed some father and son bonding scarves ‘n’ all, so in the words of Cat Stevens make sure your dads “old but he’s happy” whether he’s bold and eccentric or a rough and ready cowboy we’ve got it covered!
And if you really want to spoil him, try one of the exclusive Duo Cassette Boxsets which feature both the Palms and Black on black paisley scarves.
Hand finished with a mitred point they are the ideal Fathers Day gift, perfectly packaged in the iconic, customised Rockins cassette tapes, that’s one from you and one from the siblings!
