STYLING70s Fashion Revival...Indian Prints

As the years change we call for another tribute to a decade, and this year is no exception. Coupled with the vintage and 20s vibes echoing through our newly replenished wardrobes and catwalks, 70s retro has made a triumphant return to the tune of bright colours, Indian patterns, and midi & maxi dresses...and we couldn’t be happier...


A decade remembered for disco, big hair, roller skates, festivals, bohemian chic and unmistakeable fashion, a 70s revival would be nothing without its statement pieces, as the 70s were about risk taking and having fun and a laid back ethic – especially when it came to clothes!


It’s not only the tiered maxi dresses, Bowie-inspired silhouette, eye-searing colour combinations and high waisted jeans that’s getting our pulses racing, there’s also the accessories, hair and make-up (as seen at Marc Jacobs) made famous by Bianca Jagger and model Pat Cleveland circa their Studio 54 heyday...and of course the prints...


The Indian heritage prints of paisley’s twisted teardrops, flowers & swirls find new style currency this season, according to Vogue. Paisley and Indian block printing were particularly popular during the bygone days of the 'Summer of Love', identifying with a psychedelic style and the interest in Indian spirituality and culture ~ brought about, in part, by the pilgrimage of The Beatles to India in 1968.


With fashion now looking back to this bohemian era, it’s no surprise that paisley & other Indian prints, especially original vintage Indian gauze cotton pieces, and also the sought after silk pieces, will be high on our ‘must buy’ agenda! Pick a paisley-printed day dress, as seen at Jill Sander, or wear yours emblazoned across traditional pyjama pieces, as at Stella McCartney, or for the more daring, splash it across billowing skirts in psychedelic paisley ranging from turquoise to lime green, pink and scarlet, like Emilio Pucci, who are famed for their swirls of patterns on silk. Alternatively this seasons floral prints, especially the Indian vintage block printed fabric in the lightest gauze cottons and sensual silks, in their muted ethnic colours, or the bright and beautiful, will keep you on track to 70s inspired hippie bliss…a look which gives a simple yet ultra chic vibe to any outfit...and an air of laid back bohemian beauty to the wearer...


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 Indian prints ~ and get ready to reveal your bohemian side...xxx

Beautiful ~ Rare ~ Hippy-luxe ~ Bohemian ~ Wedding

Divine 60s/70s Pure Gauze Cotton Indian Block Print Dress 
in rare to find reds and pinks...  

An ABSOLUTELY STUNNING and extremely sought after original 1970s true vintage 100% Indian cotton gauze dress designed with the most fabulous all over patterns and colours that are so typical of this beautiful bohemian style. This idyllic vintage Indian gem would work equally well as a wonderful bohemian wedding dress ~ a statement piece of wearable art that’s bold, bewitching and effortlessly beautiful!!!

Reminiscent of a beautiful wall-hanging, the stunning patterns of jewelled colours are just heavenly; gorgeous hues of deep reds, pinks and purples in a maze of florals and foliage ~ Indian influenced images of vintage vivacity on the most soft and sensuous, muslin cotton gauze~ simply fabulous!!!

The very loose and floaty shape, (which can be worn belted and looks beautiful either way), features a stylish v-neck opening, edged in pink satin braid and framed by the prettiest of panels (beautifully replicated at the back of the dress). Cool and casual left open, it can also be fastened with the delightful, dark red corded ties ~ finished in Indian wire and metal beading ~ to give an equally gorgeous look. Lovely long, wide sleeves frame the dress in such a beautiful bohemian fashion and finish at the cuffs with hidden pop-fasteners.

Although the front and back panels (just below the neckline), and the hem, are lined in light cotton gauze muslin , the fabric throughout the dress is semi-sheer when held up to the light, a lovely feature which makes it so light to wear ~ feels so fabulous against the skin and defines the genuine bohemian spirit and style of this authentic 70s Indian garment.

The dress flares out from under the bust into a dreamy, floaty shape that sweeps in swathes of the softest cotton gauze, with a wide panel of deep red detailing towards the bottom of the skirt. Such a beautifully flattering and flowing dress, so easy to wear and so many ways to style it ~ lovely, long and loose, or paired with a leather belt, cinched at the waist, or on the hips for equally effortless chic. Wear it free, fastened, or however the mood takes you!!!

Fabulous for festivals, beach walks, sultry summer nights ~ and of course, as the perfect boho wedding dress...

Be beautiful, bohemian and sensual, and stand out from the crowd in this absolutely gorgeous piece...unique and rare and absolutely stunning!!!
