Hippie Chic Arrives in Boston

This week, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston opens Hippie Chic, a fresh look at hippie couture of the 60s and 70s, with a focus on the top fashion houses influenced by street culture. With passages on psychedelic design, cosmic couture, 60s dandyism, granny style, the gypsy look, Medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan and Victorian influences, Asian and Middle Eastern exoticism and the American frontier aesthetic—not to mention a wealth of archival photographs from the rock and folk music scenes—the scholarly yet exuberant exhibition catalog is a must-have for stylists and period enthusiasts everywhere. Featured image, originally published in the December, 1969, issue of Vogue, is reproduced from Hippie Chic. "The blue sky and exotic tile work of the shrine of Harun-i Vilayat in Isfahan, Iran, complement Halston's sumptuous panne velvet robe, tie-dyed in blue, white, and green. Halston became enamored with tie-dye in the late 1960s and patronized several different artists."
