ROCK STARS WEARING GRANNY TAKES A TRIP!

Opened in '66 by John Pearse, Nigel Waymouth and Sheila Cohen, Granny Takes a Trip became well-known for its visually surreal and colorful store fronts. The boutique had a reputation for being the rock n' roll hot spot of swinging London, eventually adding shops in New York and Los Angeles. They sold abundant velvet, sequins, fur, and paisley pieces. Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Johnny Thunders, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, and many other famous musicians took to sporting the psychedelic threads that hung in Granny's windows.
