~ BOHEMIAN BEAUTY ~

This true vintage 1970s crochet dress is simply beautiful...so adorable, so lovely ~ and so sought after~ these 70s vintage crochet pieces are hard to come by and very in demand!!!

In the most beautiful shade of duck egg blue, this dress is styled to fall and flatter in a shape very evocative of the 60s and 70s ~ slightly tunic shaped (so easy to wear and style) and mid length or falling just-below-the-knee with a silhouette that softly flares...it features lovely three-quarter length sleeves and a neckline which fastens with two self-covered buttons, giving a beautiful boat-necked shape ~ or left undone, it opens into a stylish and sexy ‘v’ ~ gorgeous!

The crochet work is stunning ~ an all-over circular pattern with pretty edging to the neck and deep bands of intricate crochet which form the scalloped cuffs and hem, this truly is a boho beauty to behold.


The delightfully soft cotton crochet is wonderfully tactile and lovely to wear, with natural stretch for a fabulously floaty fit without clinging. Stylewise, it’s so versatile ~ it looks so lovely worn loose, or equally fabulous worn with a waist belt or one that hugs the hips ~ effortlessly chic over leggings/tights or with bare legs for a sunny, summery vibe to evoke that 70s bohemian ambiance. Just fabulous for festivals, garden parties, beach walks, honeymoon, weddings, daytime and endless sultry warm summer nights!


The cult of crochet has been seen in many an illustrious designer’s collection and indeed, continues to be spotted on the catwalks ready for spring and summer. Get ahead of the trend with this delightfully dreamy dress: fun, flirty and fabulous with such a timeless versatility and fashion-forward flare and herald your inner hippy-luxe and dare to be divine in this cool crocheted creation ~ absolutely adorable..!

STYLING: 70s Fashion Revival & Crochet

Coupled with the vintage and 20s vibes echoing through our wardrobes and catwalks this season, 70s retro has made a triumphant return and with it, a variety of crochet has been seen on the catwalks ~ and we couldn’t be happier.


Crochet, once a hippie-associated trend, has had a refreshing new look and feel that’s uber-stylish. The fashion revival of crochet – reintroduced from the popular 70s style – has been gaining much popularity recently as a result of the bohemian allure which it offers, giving a simple yet chic vibe to any outfit.


There is evidence that crochet dated from the 1800s, possibly from even earlier. Queen Victoria famously boosted the popularity of Irish Crochet Lace when she purchased some  ~ she even learnt to crochet herself! The popularity of crochet hit a peak between 1910 and 1920, with Edwardian fashions calling for more complex stitch patterns, primarily using white and creams. However, it was in the 1960s that crochet took on a whole new meaning ~ It was transformed from the intricate work of the Edwardians into the bright colours and granny squares which appealed to the psychedelic youth and emerging hippie culture. Hand made crochet continued to grow in popularity, well into the 70s ~ with dresses, coats, jackets etc being made in a variety of shapes and colours...and after a long history, all these items are now gaining in popularity once again and are gracing our couture catwalk shows, appealing to all those who crave to express the hippie laid back boho vibe. And especially now, with the established international culture of  music festivals, true vintage crochet dresses and capes, ponchos, coats have become the most sought after festival fashion item ~ warm, sexy, versatile, unique ~ and just so bohemian. Seen on many celebrities and models, crochet is a beautiful look for many occasions ~ and in whites and creams looks stunning as a wedding or bridesmaid's dress for bohemian, gypsy or hippie-luxe weddings.

 

Crochet has garnered a lot of attention on the catwalks with designers such as Ralph Lauren, Pucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci showcasing chic fashion-forward dresses, skirts, hats and more, using fabrics and textures imitating the beauty of the handmade design. Paul Smith is already well known and highly regarded as the designer at the forefront of specialist crochet couture fashion with his exceptional 'granny squares' dresses, knitwear, super long scarves etc. High street hot spots, including Topshop, the barometer of London street fashion, featured crochet in their recent collections, recognising its popularity, its beauty, and versatility ~ all interwoven with that laid back, easy to wear, carefree, boho style. Many celebrities and models have been seen in a variety of crochet items, especially maxi dresses for red carpet events.

 

Crochet pieces may have hippie inspirations, but today the aesthetic is always luxurious with a modern sense of refinement and an easy way to achieve that feminine, sexy and bohemian vibe!!! 


So, don’t forget to put a flower in your hair, or on your ankle as seen at D&G ~ and grab yourself some of the sweetest vintage crochet pieces and get ready to reveal your bohemian side!!!
