Today’s Tie Dye High End Fashion
Woodstock, the famous music festival that turned a dairy farm into an icon of American musical culture, turns 50 this year. To celebrate, the famous Watkins Glen venue is holding another arts and music show – and fashion labels are apparently reviving an homage to the hippies of old.
But – forget Janis Joplin in her tour bus with a box of Rit dye, today’s tie dye fashion is combining the once ubiquitous trend with high fashion hence this Balenciaga sweater. Looks like the same Rit dye or bleached look we wore in college!
Remember making tie-dye t-shirts with bleach and an elastic? The MSGM tie-dye sweater in purple, green, and yellow is total perfection from the hippie era.
This Season’s Tie Dye Fashion Favorites
Prabal Gurung is among the designers attempting to revive the forgotten trend, in a tie-dyed wrap style dress. He keeps the look fresh and modern with cutouts and a body-hugging silhouette. His fabulous purple, orange, and red tie-dye sweater have the seventies vibe. Remember those days? Other fashion designers are offering their own take on the style, such as Phillip Lim’s tie-dye and mohair hoodie and Cotton Citizen’s muscle tank. The tie dye fashion looks released by today’s designers lack the psychedelic vibe of their 60s fashion counterparts. Instead, fashion houses are combining the pattern with tough urban aesthetics and modern silhouettes to achieve something new.
