Hippie Chic

Boho is never far from a designers inspiration board and it is because we all want a bit of that hippie feeling especially during the summer months when nothing looks prettier or sexier then a floaty vintage dress.

Kenzo is well known for his arty ethnicity and RARE is feeling the vibe with these two free spirit pieces from Kenzo. The first is a 1970s ensemble from -gulp - Kenzo Jap. Okay, it is his label, not ours! Things got a little messy with the naming of his stores Jungle Jap but as this is a blog about new acquisitions for RARE and not the Huffington Post we will focus on the fashion.

The top is done in two tiers of tiny knife pleats in turquoise, bright red and purple. It is loosely tied on the sides and is meant to be worn slightly open. The skirt is one long piece of fabric with knife pleats in the middle and sits low on the hips. The pleated panel in the front seems reminiscent of Japanese armor. Size 6.

Our other piece is an easy, soft red hippie chic dress. A very nice detail is that the dress is slightly longer in the back. Would be perfect with gold sandals. Size 4.

  1. That red

    How can anyone wear pants when there are so many dresses to entertain? I don't understand.
