This poster reflects the changes in fashion in the beginnings of the 1960s. Four figures are depicted in the poster walking and standing in fashionable clothes, holding several packets and bags in their hands - most probably they are captured after shopping in the State Department Store. A trench coat on the male figures, a tweed costume on one of the female figure and an oversized coat can be seen on the other one. These items became iconic pieces of the fashion of the decade. The portrayal of the design also adopts to the characteristic graphical style of the fashion drawings of the period.
