The Bohemian and The Beautiful

Elizabeth Taylor, Charlotte Rampling, Babe Paley, Raquel Welch. You can not get a more glamorous group of women to have worn Thea Porter. Throw in The Rolling Stones, who also wore Thea Porter, and you have reached the height of the rich hippie look. Thea Porter's brand of exotic elegance and its individualism is just what is missing in modern fashion now.

We love that she traveled to gather ethnic appliques, embroideries and antique braids. 1960s hippie de luxe meant explorations to Marrakech, India, flowing caftans and oriental inspired dresses. This circa 1965 three piece ensemble with its narrow skirt, double pleated on the side and its wrapped blouse with antique tassel reminds us of something that would have been worn Bianca Jagger and Talitha Getty.

RARE vintage believes that just about every woman would love to capture that romantic ideal of the dreamy, artistic journey in Thea Porter's designs.
