Fashion in the 1970s was defined by two iconic styles: boho-chic and disco. For Fall 2019, designer Lisa Perry takes on both in dual precision for her collection. Here own signature style usually references those types of eras—times wherein women were expressing their freedom with frivolous and rebellious fashions. Here, it’s an easier and more contemporary take on the classic looks. The boho-chic look came out in the longer and more daywear pieces, such as the black midi dress with a free-flowing skirt (with one frill on each sleeve hem) paired with suede knee-high boots. Multi-colored striped daywear pieces also emphasized the young bohemian look that dominated the referenced decade. Ironically, her takes on disco were less overt. A shimmering strapless column dress in the same stark-colored stripes was definitely disco-worthy, as were the hints of python skin. These further touched on the glamour of the decade, pushed forward at that time by designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Emilio Pucci. Still, despite the obvious vintage vibes, the collection, all in all, looked contemporary, which just goes to show that the boho chicks and the disco girls never left when the decade was over!
