Keith Richards Wears Rockins ‘Super Skinny’ Scarf At Exhibitionism
The Rolling Stones Keith Richards took to the red carpet at the opening of ‘Exhibitionism’ last night, wearing a Rockins Super Skinny Scarf in black! Richards finished off his ensemble with a black snakeskin jacket, top hat slightly askew and signature shades. As a Rockins hero and constant source of style inspiration, we are thrilled to see the one and only Richards flying the Rockins flag!

‘Rockins’ Super Skinny Scarf in Black
Open from today at the Saatchi Gallery, ‘Exhibitionism’ is the first international exhibition on the Rolling Stones. Aptly located just a short walk from the flat on Edith Grove that the bands founding members shared in 1963, the Saatchi Gallery will play host to this retrospective until September. The small one-bedroom flat is recreated in the exhibition. Overflowing ashtrays sit next to Mick’s unmade bed, while Muddy Waters fills the room, illustrating just how far the band have come since the early days of filthy crockery and scribbled lyrics on paper scraps.

Taking over the entire two floors of the gallery, ‘Exhibitionism’ holds over 500 Stones relics, from instruments and rare audio tracks to original artwork and stage costumes. With echoes of the highly successful ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition at the V&A in 2013, ‘Exhibitionism’ offers a potted history of the Stones, pieced together with rare diary excerpts written by Keith Richards in the early 1960s and intimate video footage. For the die-hard music fans, there is plenty of original band equipment, including Bill Wyman’s Vox Amp, Keith’s Harmony Meteor Guitar and Brian Jones’ ’66 Vox Dulcimer.

Created in close participation with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, this exhibition offers a rare insight into the life of a band that redefined rock and roll. Featuring artist collaborations with the likes of Shepard Fairey, Alexander McQueen and Martin Scorsese, ‘Exhibitionism’ illustrates the impact the Stones had on popular culture. More than just a rock band, the Stones created a unique aesthetic that infiltrated every part of their performance and marketing. On display is the Sticky Fingers vinyl artwork, originally conceived by Andy Warhol; this album cover played heavily on the Stones inimitable sex appeal, ensuring playful controversy remained despite their huge commercial success.

Tour and campaign imagery on display shows the band’s style evolution throughout their fame; from the matching suits requested by manager Andrew Loog Oldham, to the flamboyant catsuits of the 1980s, this exhibition shows how integral costume was to the band’s performance. On display is the 1969 Mr Fish smock dress worn by Jagger at the band’s famous free concert in Hyde Park; a garment that marked a significant shift in attitudes towards menswear and sexuality.

The Rolling Stones put on a performance like no other; along with ground breaking music and iconic outfits, the band were heavily involved in the stage designs of their tours. From the inflatable dogs of the 1990 Urban Jungle tour to the Globe Theatre-inspired set for A Bigger Bang, the Stones are innovators in more than just music. The exhibition culminates in an ear shattering 3-D video performance of (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, filmed at Hyde Park in July 2013, proving that the Stones are as rockin today as they were 50 years ago.
