A haute hippie look: Is this just fantasy? For fans of the free-spirited trend that held strong for summer, fortunately not. Designers including Dries Van Noten made a case for the idea by sending sensuous, meticulously crafted pieces evocative of the louche late sixties down the runway. This vibe is definitely detail-oriented: London-based designer Michael van der Ham’s patchwork dress is made of silk and jacquard, a lavishly touchable combination. For some lines, using materials with more hypnotic qualities is key; Torontonian brand Liel and Lentz’s subtle drop earrings feature moody Lapis Lazuli stones, while MADE Design’s baskets are handmade with hemp in Montreal. And Nest Fragrances’ diffuser will fill your space with a heady, perhaps incongruous mix of cedar leaf and lavender, giving new meaning to the phrase “Far out.”
