From Flower Power to Disco style, the 1970s were a decade of multiple sartorial happenings. We’ve had our eye on the runways and are excited to see designers, such as Gucci, stepping away from stark minimalism and opting for a more whimsical seventies-inspired look. This season hemlines are longer, pants are wider, glasses are bigger and colour palates are warming up with shades of russet brown and burnt umber. We have noticed similar happenings in the accessories department. Brands like Jenny Bird, Spitifire and Illesteva are also offering their modern take on the retro era. We’ve chosen a few of our favourite 1970’s ladies – Joni Mitchell, Ali MacGraw, Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot – to showcase pieces that will help you put a hippie spin on your wardrobe this summer.
