Summer loving

Feeling groovy? There's no better time to reminisce about the era known as the Summer of Love; the 50th anniversary of far-out 1967 is being marked in a number of ways this season including an exhibition at San Fransisco's de Young museum, The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll, which runs until August 20. A penchant for craft detailing, kaleidoscopic prints and boho florals were style trademarks of the time – you'll find such designs in this season's happy hippie-inspired swimwear. Topshop and Kiini offer pieces trimmed with crochet. Hypnotizing patterning is featured on suits by Camilla, Paolita and Ted Baker. And Penbrooke has splashed a favourite 60s motif, the paisley, on a classic red one-piece. Just add water.
