New Nostalgia: Capture The Spirit Of The ’70s With Our Must-Have Crochet Style
Pulling inspiration from 1970’s fashion, when a home-spun, DIY aesthetic was the must-have look, we’re turning our attention towards the art of crochet. Since its resurgence in spring-summer, the trend has been championed for its vintage, hand-crafted sensibility, with yarns and bright colors intertwining to give life to hats, scarves, and vests. We’re tapping into a distinctly nostalgic feel and embracing that one key crochet piece that will live in our wardrobes for years to come.
Although the craft dates back to the 1800s, crochet is more often associated with the resurgence of the hippie movement, during which folk influences made way for kaleidoscopic garments. As seen in our Limited Edition tank top, a patchwork technique creates a collage effect, with autumnal brown, green and beige merging into geometric patterns. Capturing the spirit of autumn-winter, when sheltering at home might encourage us to experiment with arts, crafts and textiles, this is a fresh staple to style whilst staying warm and cosy is of the utmost importance.

Its boxy fit lends itself well to layering over other garments. For work or weekend, opt for fitted polo necks in neutral hues or classic baggy T-shirts, tucked into a pair of classic blue jeans for an added 1970’s flair. When it’s time to go out, double the impact by throwing the tank over a printed midi dress, or let the piece take centre stage by styling it with tailored trousers and elevated heels.
