New Kids In Town

Dating back to Yves Saint Laurent's peasant tops, the 60's have always been a key influence in current style, my wardrobe included. Thus, with the 40th anniversary of Woodstock approaching on August 15th, Women's Wear Daily asked today's "young and the restless" designers to give their two cents on the trends of the time. Interested to see what your favorite grunge designers and mine came up with? I think these sketches just might surprise you!
Prabal Gurung:

Where to even begin? Maybe I'll frame it? The perfect touch in a plain space.

Peter Som:

Alexander Wang:

Well, that's a bit different from the leather and denim clad models we see trudging down his runways.

Bensoni:

Spoiler Alert!: Look for similarities to this sketch in Bensoni's S/S collection!

Bibhu Mohapatra:

Koi:

Cushnie et Ochs:

Altuzarra:

Where can I get my hands on this??

An "Aquarian Exposition" in White Lake, NY, Woodstock serves as probably the most influential moment in rock and roll history...it's not hard to see why.

Peace, Love, & The 60's Baby, Yeah,
Sarah
