Flower Power Revisited
I hate Hippies. Its true and maybe its a majority opinion, but I don't care. The Hippy transmitted through the decades to give us the annoying stoner white guy with dread locks. That's their legacy.
That said I love the fucked up pop art grunge version by Love Thy Neighbor (thanks to Fashionisto for the heads up). SS09 shows a good range of washed out denim, plaids, and trousers in a variety of fits. Its a very relaxed look. Unfortunately Love Thy Neighbor's stockists are on the other side of the planet. Come to New York guys.
On a different floral note, I've been developing a fixation on floral pins. Kate Cusack (no relation to Joan and John) has stolen my heart, and my lapels, with these zippers turned flower pins.
