1972: Hybrid dressing

A refreshing bicolor halter culotte by Irene Galitzine from the fall of 1972. Perhaps this dress symbolizes this year in fashion - still with fragments of the most frivolous period in recent fashion history (the late 60s) but approaching the harder take-charge image right around the corner.

This yellow orgy is a stark contrast to the sleek elegance of the Galitzini dress. Instead it has the hallmark style of the progressive earth mother style that was quite common in the early to mid 70s. Quoting from the caption of the image: "You can do anything you want with the yellows now, but you can never ignore them again."

Again, this ensemble shows a play on contrasts, namely the strong geometric pattern that goes well together with the lingon berry like necklace.

Delectable thread ad.
