Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015 Channels '60s Mod With Messy Hair and Psychedelic Florals
Designers never seem to tire of referencing the '60s, no matter how many times it's been done before. Cynthia Rowley chose to go Mod for her Spring/Summer 2015 collection and, for a theme that we've seen time and again, her designs look surprisingly fresh. This is not Warhol's subversive, artsy Mod. Picture Brigitte Bardot lounging on the beach, not Edie Sedgwick Youthquaking at Max's Kansas City.
If there was any doubt that soft, feminine dressing is back in style, this collection's swinging silhouettes and unabashedly playful color scheme will do away with that, leaving you excited to don girly dresses and patterned separates come spring. Although the line isn't perfect — it lost it's way with some misguided gold-foil workout gear — there are plenty of charming iterations of lace and floral to keep us happy.
