This counterculture began influencing mainstream fashion; with roots in the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements, psychedelic experimentation, and patterns found in nature. This era happens to be one of our favourites - who can resist the flamboyant textiles, dramatic silhouettes and quirky advertising of the day? Whichlookis your favourite?
There are few fashion items more iconic and timelessly elegant than a 1960s swing coat or cape. The best part is that they are still so wearable today, by day or night. We're obsessed with the soft pastel colours and simple silhouettes of these coats. Which look is your favourite?
After World War II, Japanese fashion was highly influenced by the West, as you can see by these amazing spreads from a Japanese fashion magazineYoung Woman(1969). Western style silhouettes such as the mini skirt and slim fitting dresses can be seen, sometimesina subtle traditional Japanese floral print, merging the two worlds together. I'm obsessed with these looks which are giving me 90s Clueless vibes and would be totally wearable today.
