Summer of Love
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the “Summer of Love” here in San Francisco, and we’re celebrating with exhibits and events around the city. To keep our style happening and groovy, we’ve gathered some unique pieces to keep up our non-conformist vibe.
If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear flowers in your hair…and on your lapel, around your neck, in your ears, and on your fingers, too!
Expand your mind at the Human Be-In with this trippy tessellated bracelet, then chill with the sweet strawberry at the tip of this hip, artistic necklace.
We think these Art Nouveau pieces, with their natural motifs and organic lines, would have looked right at home on the colorful, flowing threads sold at Middle Earth Clothing, one of the boutiques on Haight Street that catered to the hippie clientele. And we’re pretty sure this necklace—very suggestive of a certain herb—wouldn’t have been out of place, either!
Another purveyor of far-out fashions was In Gear, whose flyers show mod ladies with bobbed hair in geometric prints reminiscent of 1920s style. Slick onyx and graphic enamel pair perfectly with this aesthetic.
Make the scene on Hippy Hill with free-form pieces that reject traditional designs and break all the rules.
So whether you’re coming to meet some gentle people here, or reliving this strange vibration from somewhere else across the nation (or the world), get yourself some flowers, and let the sunshine in!
