Spin Cycle: Tie-Dye Emerges as Resort’s Runaway Trend

-------

now-trending-faustoThis August marks the 45th anniversary of Woodstock. Tie-dyed T-shirts have remained a mainstay for jam-band fans and festivalgoers ever since. But the Resort ’15 collections are shaking the psychedelic swirls from their hippie-dippy connotations. Designers including Michael Kors, Fausto Puglisi, and Burberry Prorsum’s Christopher Bailey gave dip-dyed looks a sophisticated rinse-and-spin—Kors’ wisteria leather bell-bottoms are already at the top of editors’ wish lists. At Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier experimented with bleach effects on long T-shirt dresses, while Gucci’s Frida Giannini showed a cool, faded cable-knit pullover and matching stonewashed jeans. Even Alexander Wang gave the emerging trend his stamp of approval, proposing tie-dye as the downtown alternative to camouflage.

Here, a slideshow of our favorite new tie-dyed looks.
