Groovy man...the Museum of Fine Arts better known as the MFA is paying tribute to the hippie era of the 60's and 70's.
On display are all things retro-fabulous in the world of fashion - fringe, paisley, bell bottoms, flowers and more.
In a time of rebellion against the status quo, this "peace & love" Woodstock generation expressed their change of attitude in their political stance, their music... and trivial as it may sound, their fashion.
Men and women alike wore long hair and loose clothing. There a pieces that look country and peasant along with items that favor a more psychedelic edge with vibrant colors and busy patterns. This style defined this entire generation and has never again been replicated with such authenticity.
The exhibition captures this benchmark in American style perfectly and features the works ranging from young hip designers and avant-garde boutiques such as Ossie Clark and Betsey Johnson. There are even displays showing to more mainstream brands including Geoffrey Beene, Arnold Scaasi, and Yves Saint Laurent.
Showing at the MFA now until November 11th. For more information visit www.mfa.org
