Tie Dye Is Taking Over

We like hippie things if they're faraway from anything that resembles granola, Tevas, and dreadlocks. We're not huge fans of watered down 'boho' (simply because it hit its saturation point a few years back) but we do like alternative bohemian references--those aspects of 'hippie' not touched on during the layered, oversized, tabloid boho days. If it's a new version of boho, if it's not flouncy or super-fem, we're feeling it for the next couple of seasons. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall collection was strong in this regard. He hit up beatnik as if it were a big middle finger to the boho of seasons gone by. For this reason, tie dye feels alright and kind of fresh right now. Designers are styling it like it's the first time someone thought to buy muslin and dip-dye their goods in the bathtub. That is, the collections are not over-run with 'boho' but actually kind of boyish and straightforward. Recently, we've seen this economical print from Karen Walker and DVF and smaller labels like Secrets of Charm and Mary Meyer. It's ombre on a budget and it's back in a big way.
