Back to the 60s

5 feb. 2015 5 Comentarios / Comments »

El otro día, buceando por Internet encontré unas fotos de la revista LIFE que me parecieron geniales. Se trata de una serie de fotografías de la vida universitaria en USA, principalmente en California en los años 60.

I was surfing the Internet the other day and I found these amazing pics from LIFE magazine. The pictures portray the North American life and fashion back in the 60s, mainly in California colleges. 


Quiero compartirlas con vosotros porque creo que, además de ser una inspiración genial, nos ayudan mucho a entender de dónde viene esta tendencia "festivalera" que se ve en lugares como Coachella, donde todas las chicas llevan flores en el pelo y flecos en chalecos. Me parece interesante el desarrollo que esta "moda" hippie ha tenido a lo largo de los años, una moda que tuvo su momento auténtico en los 60 evolucionando a algo que es más bien temático, algo que sólo nos pondríamos si nos fuéramos de concierto o de camping con nuestros amigos, pero que jamás se nos ocurriría llevar a la uni o al trabajo. ¡Aunque sí tengo que decir que hay un par de looks que me encantan para el día a día!

I want to share them with you because I think that, apart from being a great inspiration, they help us understand where this "festival" trend comes from. We see "hippie" looks in places like Coachella, where girls wear flowers on the hair and fringed vests. I fell like it is so interesting to analyze the development of this hippie trend and the relevance it has had during the past years. A trend that had its own real moment in the 60s and now it's something you would wear only to a concert or camping with friends, but never to uni or work. Well, I have to admit... there are a couple looks I would wear on a daily basis!
