SS2017 Trend: Seventies Twist
If there’s one decade designers keep on being inspired by it’s the seventies. We can’t even remember not writing a seventies trend report for one season. And why wouldn’t we want to revive and relive the best retro styles of the disco decade? For S/S2017 designers seventies inspired prints and patterns again are all the rage. Miuccia Prada says so, just glance at her full on seventies Prada show (including mini skirts and highly accessorized, cinched checked blazers with touches of fur) as well as her Miu Miu show (filled with elegant, seventies striped pieces). Roberto Cavalli literally took us back in time to the love, peace, joy decade including long, floral printed hippie dressed, flared pants, skinny scarfs, XL sunglasses and the warmest color palette. Riccardo Tisci’s close to nature collection in a fiery color palette—red, orange, brown, and pink perfectly fits in with the theme. Emilio Pucci’s color blocking collection only briefly touched the seventies dresscode with a few graphic and vibrant prints. And while Chloé, Sportmax and Marc Jacobs just hinted at the boho style we know all too well, we can without a doubt state the seventies have once again made a comeback. Diverse, multi interpretable but definite.
