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.
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!
