JAW DROPPING KILLER 60s VINTAGE 

MAXI PSYCHEDELIC OP-ART DRESS / WEDDING GOWN

By 60s vintage label Hardob


WEARABLE ART ~ RARE, UNIQUE & ONE OFF


Would make THE MOST FABULOUS bohemian wedding dress!!!



If you’re looking for a stand-out statement piece, something truly unique, a piece of wearable art that screams psychedelia and leaves you breathless with its iconic pop art designs and far-out fabulous colours – you’ve found it in this stunner of a 60s sleeveless maxi! This gorgeous garment, designed by Hardob (a vintage West German company whose designs ~ particularly from the 60s and 70s ~ are extremely sought after) and fashioned in the lightest, loveliest silk-like material, is eye-poppingly alluring and so evocative of the colourful swinging Sixties. A genuinely rare find, with such iconic psychedelic patterning!


The shape is stunning and stylish ~  the fitted bodice features a round neckline and an integrated waistband which leads to the most lusciously long skirt that flares to an A-line and keeps on going! A long centre back zip makes the dress easy to slip on and off while a cream, silky-satin underdress provides the perfect lining.


But what really makes this darling of a dress pop is that fabulous print and those carnival colours ~ the brightest of oranges, yellows, pinks, blues and greens collide in a kaleidoscope of shapes and designs influenced by Eastern mysticism, geometric prints, abstract and fantasy… and while scrolls, circles and swirls merge with peacocks and paisley under a striking waistband of citrus circles, dancing girls decorate the hem in a sea of vivid blues. Beyond fabulous and so unusual!!


Be beautiful, bohemian and bold, and stand out from the crowd in this colourful creation that typifies revolutionary 60s design, fashion-forward flamboyance and daring innovation in an era when pop art peaked, love and liberation lead the way and, it seemed, anything was possible…


Would make THE MOST FABULOUS bohemian wedding dress!!!

History : 60s Styles & Sounds ~ The Future’s Bright…

Music and fashion became entwined and redefined for a new generation who eagerly embraced the pop culture which marked out the Swinging Sixties as a decade unlike any that had gone before. This was a time of revolution in fashion, attitudes and music, delivering a new-found sense of freedom as society discovered colour, flamboyance, style and ownership that gave rise to a multitude of groundbreaking fashion trends. These new looks not only mirrored the social movements of the time but were particularly influenced by the iconography of film stars and models such as Twiggy, who effortlessly defined the ultra-modern looks for a new generation ~ and the pioneering style and innovation of Biba et al...meanwhile, the Fab Four would combine the trends of Dandy, androgynous, hippy, bohemian and period costume in the ‘perfect storm’ of style genius that was Sgt Pepper.

The festival scene was also flourishing, bringing with it a sense of empowerment and liberation which became apparent in 60s clothing as a bohemian counterculture took hold. Clothes became loose and relaxed with brightly coloured, clashing prints and patterns decorating all manner of clothing ~ tunic tops, waistcoats, bell bottoms and the eponymous maxi dresses and skirts. Marvellous maxis and floaty dresses with billowing sleeves in velvet, chiffon and satin were modelled by the likes of Marianne Faithfull and Jane Birkin, hidden under floppy hats and layers of cool and sultry chic...their long, fabulous, flowing dresses in silks, cottons, crochet and cheesecloth adorned with flowers, frills and beads to complement the mood and the music.


The achingly trendy style arenas of London’s Kings Road and Carnaby Street gave rise to an explosion of flamboyance, flair and ‘far out’ fashion that saw a refreshing riot of colour in batik, brocade, chiffon and crochet via flower power prints and geometrics, pop art, paisley and a plethora of psychedelic patterns.

This sense of idealism, freedom and optimism was captured at a time when Warhol held court and music was the new religion ~ a time which will always evoke those sunny, carefree, heady days of endless Summers and free spirits, represented by the gorgeously gregarious and bohemian fashionistas who dared to be different and blazed a trail for generations to come...
