TIME WARP – why going back in time is the new chic

TIME WARP – why going back in time is the new chic

By Posted on 1 Comment2min read

When Nicolas Ghesquiere became the new creative director of Louis Vuitton, the fashion fan inside of me did some serious cheerleading. His previous work for Balenciaga was always ahead of its time – relevant, modern and supplemented with incredible accessories. I was hoping this was going to be the case at LV and with this season’s ‘60s, early ‘70s collection, there is so much to covet. Who would’ve thought that looking like an awesome version of Florence Henderson (The Brady Bunch’s matriarch) could be so cool? Wide collars, babydoll dresses, high-waisted trousers and A-line minis are totally in and Gucci has joined the retro trip by producing some incredible clothes and shoes this season in wild shades of mustard, blush pink, muted cornflower blue and a whole bunch of leopard print to boot. I played around with these beautiful clothes inside of Tomek Archer’s fittingly colourific moveable pods on display at the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation in Sydney.

Take a leaf out of Louis Vuitton’s book and rock your miniskirt with ankle boots and a smattering of leather.
70s4.mel
Shiny patent leather boots and cool pearl accessories adds another dimension (Gucci dress and boots, Sarina Suriano jewellery).

Sometimes a dress is born that just does amazing things to a woman’s curves. This Louis Vuitton baby is it.
70s6.mel
Don’t forget the new vintage cool in accessories (Louis Vuitton bag and boots).
