60 is 90 Upside Down.

Watching Rosemary’s Baby the other day got me thinking about 1960s fashion in all its glory.  And about how this wildly neglected decade has been overshadowed by the current 90s craze.  Hell, even we’ve jumped on the 90s bandwagon.  When I say that 60 is 90 upside down, I’m not just talking numerically.  90s fashion was all about the greasy, grungy look, whereas the 60s were all about looking polished and coiffed.  So if stringy hair and overalls are not your cup of tea, fret not, my friends!  I’m here to remind you that the 60s are alive and well for spring 2013.

Marc Jacobs was called by 60s muses in his own line and for Louis Vuitton.  Both collections featured 1960s inspired patterns, lines, accessories and hair.

Moschino also embraced the silhouettes from this fabulous decade for Spring 2013.

And while 90s photo spreads currently dominate magazines and fashion websites, 60s editorials like A La Mod from How To Spend It give us the polished, colorful pop we so desperately need amidst all the greasy hair and plaid.

Until soon,
