Bohemian Festival Style was born at born at Woodstock
It’s back to Woodstock, the summer of 1969 style is trending this season and in which case you’re wondering what did they wear back then and how do you dress like them as Bohemian Festival Style was born at born at Woodstock. This music festival was held the summer of August 15th to 18th in Nineteen Sixty Nine on dairy farm in Bethel, New York.
The Music Festival captured the zeitgeist of the late 1960’s as the underground cultural movement and attitudes of bohemian festival goers as seen in the film Woodstock.
Menswear pieces in the collection embrace the effortless style of Ben Sherman’s heritage re-visiting a passion for music and iconic sixties music festival posters.
The Era where it was all about flamboyance and extravagance of Peacocks allowing men to pioneer a distinct and colourful dress sense.
Summer is already underway and I cannot help feel inspired by the looks coming down the catwalk as I witnessed rich pattern floral, vintage, and spring floral art patterns adorn garments.
Even the catwalks soundtrack echoed the genre of folk and rock, blue’s rock, hard rock, jazz fusion to psychedelic to progressive rock to set the scene for the collection.

Retro looks form the essence of the sixties psychedelic peacock inspiration combining a contemporary twist to tailoring including deconstructed summer blazers, soft linen separates worn with printed shorts.
Key directional pieces of the collection such as suede jackets, hooded parka, relaxed drawstring trousers and gingham shirts looked great in shades of dark denim, claret red and soft pinks.
A fresh summer palette saw traditional patterns revived for spring summer 2018 in indigo, denim for outerwear, bolder hues of brick and tan teamed with classic stripes and checks.
This season’s psychedelic inspiration injecting a bohemian spirit into the collection.
