Back to the Future with Phard!

Phard Catalog
I’ve been super busy this week sorting my vintage clothing that is getting ready to go up in the Future Hippie Store and also giving my own closet a much needed once over. As I was digging through the never ending piles of stuff, I came across this large Five Star Binder simply marked “Fashion”.

As I unzipped the folder, piles of articles from foreign fashion mags and catalogs from my travels, fell gently to the floor. I discovered one in particular that brought back memories of late night dinners in restaurants tucked away on side streets, and mid day espresso breaks at the local cafe.

The mini-magazine is from Phard, I had picked it up during a shopping excursion on the Via del Corso in Rome several years back. As soon as I flipped it open I knew I wanted to post about it! The pics are bright and fun, everything I think the future is going to be, even though it was shot in the past.

Phard is still around and as fierce as ever! The photographer that shot the catalog is Stefano Bidini who is also still rockin’ some fabulous campaigns. Below are a few photos from the catalog, and the streets of Rome from that trip. I will put up more pics as I scan them in. πŸ™‚

Ciao bella!

FUTURE FRIDAY’S Walking On Clouds

andreas stavrinides walking on cloudsYay! It’s Friday! I’m looking forward to a weekend of friends, fun, sun and sifting through some of my vintage clothing that has been in bins waiting to be rediscovered. It’s kind of like going shopping in your own closet! πŸ™‚ Some pieces I will keep and some will go up for sale in the Future Hippie Shop to hopefully find a new loving home.

Today seems like a good day to start “Future Friday’s”, a special day set aside for cool futuristic pics from a featured photographer. We’ll see how it goes since I get sidetracked sometimes (*wink*) but for now we’ll start with a set from Andreas Stavrinides called “Walking on Clouds” in Elle magazine.

Hope everybody has a great weekend! What do you have planned?
Love All Around,

Cara Mia

Basso & Brooke Resort 2010 Color Splash

Basso & Brooke Resort 2010When I first saw pieces from the Basso & Brooke Resort 2010 collection, I though to myself, “Yes! This is exactly the wave of the future! Clothing that’s bursting with color yet totally sophisticated and wearable at the same time.” Now I have to give credit where credit is due, I was first mesmerized by Basso & Brooke while reading Couture Carrie, one of my all time favorite fashion blogs! I gravitated to this collection and had to investigate! πŸ™‚

Here are some of my favorite pics from the collection.

Welcome To Future Hippie!

future hippieSince this is my first post on Future Hippie, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pics from my inspiration folder and give you a quick idea of what’s in store.

My name is Cara Mia. Some of you may know me from my blog Hippie Couture which focuses on fashion, art, music and culture from the 1960’s and 70’s, and how it relates to today’s trends. While still giving a nod to the past, Future Hippie is more about the “nouveau hippies” and the trendsetters of the future.

The next generation is bright and all about color and individuality! It’s about self acceptance, expressing yourself through your creative endeavors and being kind to others. The future is fun! And this is what I hope to share with you though this blog. πŸ™‚

Thanks for droppin’ by! Leave a comment and share your ideas and blogs with me. Who are some of your favorite “future hippies”?
