70s Inspired Fashion Fall Trends
As September comes to a close, the Fall Fashion trends established on the runway during the biggest fashion month of the year begin to be revealed as the the weather inevitably gets cooler. Designers sent many 70s inspired fashion fall trends down the New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter runway this year and there is no shortage of this bourgeoning trend in the Luxury Accessories and Vintage Fashion auction on October 7. This aesthetic from one of the more iconic decades in fashion can be mixed into our wardrobes by pairing vintage fashions with modern wardrobe stables to create an on-trend but wearable look.
Here, the director of our Luxury Accessories and Vintage Fashion department, Anne Forman, takes a look at a few fashions from our curated inventory inspired by this trend.
This Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche goldenrod peasant blouse is perfect tucked into a modern flared jean and paired with heels. This type of open neckline calls for layering necklaces. This Chanel sautoir can be layered with a long metallic tassel necklace, creating a funky yet sophisticated accent to this casual fall ensemble.
Bill Gibb was a seventies knitwear powerhouse who designed his iconic patterned garments for his namesake line that launched in 1972. Seventies fashion icon Twiggy was a huge fan of Gibb; wearing his creations for many special events. This cozy Bill Gibb sweater has a ruffled shawl collar and a pattern reminiscent of the 70s. Wear over a skinny black pant to complete the look.
One of the highlights of the Fall Luxury Accessories and Vintage Fashion auction is this Thea Porter caftan. Raised in the Middle East, Porter’s iconic caftans perfectly blend the Eastern and Western fashion traditions. This beautiful bright blue caftan is the perfect eclectic addition to any wardrobe.
It’s rare to find a handbag that is fashion forward and completely utilitarian. Meet the bucket bag. Roomy and appealing, it will keep you looking fresh and organized. This Louis Vuitton Epi bucket bag is in a fantastic green color – which will provide a perfect pop as we head into the cooler weather.
