The business did flirt with the Swinging Sixties. The most influential youth icons of the 1960s were the Beatles. In 1964 Kangol Wear obtained the sole right to make and distribute worldwide any headgear which featured the image, endorsement or name of the Beatles. Eileen Greig designed a range of Beatles caps and berets. Kangol Wear even organised a joint promotion with the press to publicise her creations. This began to grow the brand’s credibility in the music world of the 1960s.
