Biba, started by Barbara Hulanicki, was a London boutique known for mod designs which were especially popular with women in their twenties and teens, mixing art nouveau with rock and roll influences. Biba was not only fashion forward, but affordable to the average young woman, which set it apart from most other high fashion London boutiques. This is a prototype for a never-produced bag from the boutique, featuring the iconic logo.
