TECHNO HIPPIE – TWO TRENDS COMBINE TO A STUNNING EFFECT
Two decades, two generations, two eras of fashion, yet so much in common. The classic summer-of-love hippie look has been influencing street fashion for over half a century, but now wild tassels and vibrant tie-dye are celebrating their comeback on the festival scene. These fashion favourites of the original hippies and 1990s techno kids have been reimagined for 2020 in striking neon colours and faded pastel shades. United by an unbridled desire for liberation, the fashion of both generations have now merged into one movement – techno hippie. This trendsetting fusion is dancing into the new decade with oversized blazers, baggy hoodies, metallic details, tie-dye patterns and animal-inspired prints.
HUMPHREY’S eyewear picks up on key elements of this emerging trend. Oversized shapes set the tone, ranging from panto to octagonal, with this season’s highlights featuring everything from soft pastel shades to eye-catching neon, matte havana to glossy transparent. The new stainless steel models serve up prominent angles and bold edges, while soft tones also feature – shimmering delicately in the light of the zeitgeist. Let the journey begin. From hippie to techno, festivals to the street – the new HUMPHREY’S eyewear street style works whenever, wherever.
