Still in keeping with all things seventies, I’ve compiled my own must-have 70’s edit lust list. And then some, because attempting to keep within a five to six piece limit proved utterly impossible for me. Because fashion in this era was truly a celebration and wonderful whirlwind of texture. From folk to fringe and crochet to neutrals, anything went as long as it felt right. The seventies saw the attempt of eliminating boundaries and conformities. Freedom and love reigned and were to some point expressed through fashion, as I hope it is being done so here on this 70’s edit.
These days, when the modern era reminisces on the subject we notoriously associate it with bell bottoms, suede and fringing. Ultimately limiting and excluding ourselves from the droves of exuberant prints and bohemian like embellishments that too draw inspiration from those days. It is exciting to see celebrated designers embracing this era fully. Like Isabel Marant’s major folk references (here and here for example) throughout her collections. Same can be said with Tamara Mellon (also see here and here). And not to forget Saint Laurent’s playful star embellishments that have taken centre stage on the influencer scene. An embellishment which I’ve never been a fan of; seeing as though I’ve always viewed that traditional form of a star to be somewhat tacky. Yet Saint Lauren have removed such associations from me, making one yearn for those dainty little golden stars. Be it adorned on bucket bags or stitched onto clothing; Ms Slimane sure does know how to work wonders, doesn’t she?
Peace and love always,
