Retrospective

COUNTER-COUTURE

The Museum of Arts and Design brings us back to the heyday of the hippie era. Clothing, jewelry, photographs, and other memorabilia from the 1960s-1970s demonstrate the extravagance and ingenuity of that era.

 

 
Before fashion changed a few decades later, this clothing and jewelry still had wearability as its locus, and consciously expressed a basic romanticism for both feminine and masculine genders with its timely tendency for individualistic liberalism and radicalism as its cultural inspiration.
