Caravan Dreams: ‘60s & ‘70s Rock Inspiration

Our September lookbook, titled “Caravan Dreams,” is one of my favorites to date.  At first glance it immediately reminded me of my favorite musical era, the late ‘60s and early ‘70s when the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, and more were in their heyday.  The flower power hippies were slowly integrating more elements of glam into their style resulting in a multi-layered, textured look full of embellishments and intricate details.  Part gypsy, part rock ‘n’ roll, it’s a look that continues to inspire us today and we love making it modern with interesting new silhouettes and accessories! Here’s some Caravan Dream inspiration, along with some of my favorite lookbook shots mixed in.

Very well written. It’s one of my favorites too because I love that late sixties early seventies look! It’s the first thing I thought of when looking through it. Free People + Rock n Roll = AMAZING
