Celebrating the fashion behind the ever-evolving, dreamy counter-cultural motif.
From hippy to hipster, this spirited style bible is an intoxicating survey of tie-dye, featuring high-fashion photographs as well as archival photographs of style icons throughout its trippy history to its contemporary revival. Seen in fashion and interiors, dressed up or dressed down, associated with high or counter cultures, tie-dye has had multiple fashion and cultural incarnations, and now, tie-dye is everywhere—in fashion, music, design, interiors, and art.
Tie Dye presents a lush and vibrant kaleidoscope of contemporary photography, as well as highlights of cultural and style icons in tie-dye looks from the ’60s to now, celebrating its cultural evolutions, from Woodstock to the catwalk. With fashion-forwardness, cool-factor, and rich cultural references, Tie Dye is a captivating and delightful tribute to the beloved motif to be treasured by cultural enthusiasts, fashion-istas, musicians, aging hippies, and the high fashion scene alike.
