Festivalero Style, a Classic from The Sixties

If you think that the festival style and boho chic so typical of the looks of the attendees at Coachella, Glastonbury and other dates marked as essential was a new invention, you were very wrong. It all began in the 1960s, with groupies as Anita Pallenberg or Marianne Faithfull marking an unmistakable style that is still being imitated today by it-girls like Kate Moss and with the Woodstock Festival as a key moment of the hippie movement.

Woodstock, the myth

If you could travel back in time, I would not hesitate, I would move to this farm near New York, to August 1969 to live in first person the three intense days of drugs, sex and rock ‘n’ roll that he managed to bring together more than half a million people.

To listen live to Joan Baez, Santana, Canned Heat, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, The Who, Joe Cocker, or Jimi Hendrix at its best, along with the atmosphere of the free love and ideals of pacifism and environmentalism that advocated the hippie movement make a unique moment quote that we can only revive in the documentary that was recorded in Woodstock.

In style, Woodstock is hippie, thousands of flowers, they are round glasses, monkeys long, fluid fabrics, ribbons in her hair, much influence ethnic clothing, psychedelic prints and wide-brimmed hats.

Anita Pallenberg

This model, actress and fashion designer of italo-German origin was sentimentally attached to the members of the Rolling Stones Brian Jones and Keith Richards. We like the eclectic style of Anita Pallenberg and his passion for accumulating accessories.

Wide belts, vests, printed scarves, Leopard prints and boots are part of the crazy 60s uniform and we still have them in our minds when we think in a Bohemian style.

Don’t tell me that this image could be signed by the same Kate Moss, an icon of style that often put as a reference both Anita and Marianne. The inspiration is undeniable.

Marianne Faithfull

Great friend of Anita, Marianne Faithfull It was an English singer who had a brief relationship with Mike Mick Jagger.

We continue copying it coats of hair with volume and rounded dough sunglasses, his hair with bangs framing a beautiful sad eyes, her line ball gown dresses.

I like to see that although they continue through the years and decades, there are things that do not go out of fashion.
