Lessons in Hippie Living, Courtesy of Bec & Bridge

The Aussie duo filled Sydney's Bay 25 with incense smoke, kolam and models showing a lot of skin.

Bec & Bridge’s Resort 2017 show was perhaps the hippiest one of the season. As guests filled up the industrial Bay 25 at Sydney’s Carriageworks, the unmistakable scent of burning incense was there to greet them alongside a live drawing of Kolams that covered the concrete floor (the Kolams were also present backstage). Some of the girls walked the runway barefooted, save for some ornate anklets (or payal), while others wore little crescents and stars on their ears. That’s where the hippie references end though. No peace signs, no bell bottoms, no dead straight Jane Birkin-type hair. The clothing erred towards what is perhaps best described as “polished resort”. A modern hippie, if you well. No kaftans here, thank you very much. In its place were silky bias-cut dresses and matching separates and several part-beach, part-party dresses that showed plenty of skin. Wear them to the beach, wear them to the club, or wear them to a club on the beach. How Down Under is that?
