Terra cotta color palettes, disco shirts and argyle sweaters were prevalent on and off the runway during fashion month, marking 1970s hippiedom as a shoe-in for this year’s coveted summer trend. Just a few examples of nostalgia’s profound impact on Spring/Summer 2018 collections include: Zimmermann channeling vintage surfers paradise beach culture of the Australian Gold Coast, Maria Grazia Chiuri drawing inspiration from a strong and rebellious period in women’s history through patchwork and embroidered denim and Marc Jacobs incorporating subtle nods to retro flower power prints. Wanting to incorporate 1970s inspired summer pieces that could throw it back to the days of bell bottomed corduroy suits, I could think of no brand better suited for the task than Marques Almeida, a line built on a hardworking American classic: denim. Paired with brown suede studded Aquazzura Tulum sandals and Linda Farrow x the Row round sunnies, the denim bell sleeved Marques Almeida dress is perfect for modernizing 70’s old school Americana garb.
