Back to the 60s with Marianne Faithfull

One moment we are flirting with 80s and 90s, next with 70s. Are we born in wrong era? Of so many eras that were alternating this year, the swinging sixties are probably most feminine and romantic. Lot of designers in recent resort collections were channeling 60s, of which Marc Jacobs collection was one of the Please, Can I have it all kind of collection. And truly 60s are unfailing era. Age of icons; Biba, Mary Quant, Rudi Gernreich, Twiggy, Warhol, Edie, Brigitte, Jane Birkin, Mia Farrow, Ana Karina, Francoise Hardy, Audrey, Bob Dylan, just to mention a few. List is just too long for recital but it would be just sin not to mention Beatles, The Rolling Stones and their girls. Gosh how many inspiration they left us. That's why I remembered of one of my favorite, Marianne Faithfull and her style during the sixties.

For Marianne-esque charm I choose dresses at fantastic Orla Kiely, famous for her cognizable prints. Emerald green dress with cutout at neck is totally Marianne, same as the printed one with petal neckline.
Shoes are Clerance Le Flaca suede sandals from Coclico, Vintage 20s T strap sandals, Coclico suede sandals in royal blue with charming name-Odalisk Sapphire and Chie Mihara sandals in dark green and brown.

Cute work, like your accurate 'trendboard' and Orla's dresses (they make me think of Emilio Pucci's old ones) are awesome.
You know fashion is just like that, always flirting with decades while reinterpreting them. Lovely post, (Cohen quotation too). Ciao!
