For bohemian style inspiration, look no further than the original hippie. Some of the earliest trendsetters, hippie style epitomizes the comfort and chic sophistication of the modern traveler. This Tuesday, Boston?s Museum of Fine Arts debuts their Hippie Chic exhibit, a flashback to the psychedelic garments of the 60s and 70s.
The exhibition features fifty looks in fabrics ranging from silk, velvet and of course, eye-catching floral and graphic prints. Mannequins decorated with looks by Hanae Mori, Geoffrey Beene, Thea Porter, Giorgio di Sant?Angelo and Halston show off their free and easy style. The event is launching with a members-only opening on July 16th and will be open to the public until mid-November.
This exhibition follows in the footsteps of the Met?s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit, another example of the fabulous results that occur when fashion art and culture cross paths. The MFA show demonstrates how high fashion; couture houses took their inspiration from the Gypset, boho clique of hippies. Bohemian outfits that were popular during the Woodstock era can currently be seen on celebs and globetrotters alike. Regardless whether it is on the festival fields of Coachella or the concrete catwalk of New York City, bohemian style continues to be in vogue.
