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….

Apparently there’s no smoke without a fire, so the Rockins Gun printed tee must be pretty HOT!
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 Rockins Scarf 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 Rockins bandana, 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!
Now you’re pretty much ready, all that’s left to pack are wellies, sunnies and a generous dose of attitude!
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!

3. This was a specially made scarf for Kate from Rockins but get a similar look with our Grebo Chic Classic Skinny scarf
We all have that favourite band tee. It’s slightly faded, a little tatty around the edges and it’s been in your wardrobe for years. So when it came to creating the perfect tees for our Mainline collection, we looked to our own vintage pieces for inspiration.
All our tees are crafted from an ultra-fine knit cotton, for that slouchy, worn-in feel. First, let’s start with the basics. Our plain tees, available in black and white, are not your average basic t-shirt. Both in a faded, off-shade wash, these short sleeve tees are a ‘wear anywhere’ staple. Rock them under a denim jacket and tuck into your jeans for a look that screams Debbie Harry circa 1978.
For our ‘Shark’ t-shirt, we looked to our skinny scarf of the same name, inspired by the Flying Tigers graphic nose art. Emblazoned with a bold, shark teeth motif, the slightly tarnished, off-white shade further cements that well-worn aesthetic. Taking elements from the Shark skinny scarf, we’ve also created our star print tank, which we’ve lovingly named ‘Star Tits’. Adorned with an exploding star print motif that sits high on the chest, this tank is cut high under the arms so it can be worn without a bra. Sling a scarf around your neck, pull on your high-rise and you’re good to go.
Launching this weekend, our Guns ‘N’ Rockins shirt collection. A rock and roll twist on paisley, the Guns ‘N’ Rockins motif is our very own peace emblem; never has there been a more important time to spread the love.
Crafted from the finest silk, our Guns ‘N’ Rockins shirts are available in two cuts; the mitred sleeve and pussy-bow. We love our blue silk pussy-bow left undone and paired with an extra skinny scarf knotted loosely at the neck; sometimes less isn’t always more.
Our mitred sleeve shirt is cut on the bias for an ultra-flattering fit, with paired twin buttons that won’t pop open. Choose from washed black or burgundy, both adorned with our floral-gun motif. For a more understated look, choose our plain washed black shirt with mitred sleeves, complete with mother of pearl buttons.
We’ve worked hard to achieve that well-worn vintage feel with these shirts, which are presented inside out with a faded finish. Imbued with a heavy dose of Seventies charm, these shirts are the perfect pairing for our Rockins denim. Think Jimi Hendrix in a loosely buttoned blouse, or Syd Barrett’s penchant for psychedelic prints. Grab your high rise denim, tuck in and belt up.
