In the 1970’s we saw a strong “to the earth” traditional trend. The decade saw political unrest and hard times in correlation with a rise in “alternative” living hippie aesthetics. If you dig into the socio-political status versus the cultural trends, you can see clear comparisons to present day.
What’s the same?
⁃ More interest in “healthy eating” (Veganism, Organic, healing through food)
⁃ Boom in alternative therapies (Reiki, Aromatherapy, Meditation etc)
⁃ Longer, looser silhouettes
⁃ Natural interior trends- plants, natural materials,
⁃ Rise of handycrafts
There is a theory that this is due to the want for comfort in a turbulent time. Natural and “hands on” things have been part of us since we were primitive beings so, naturally, we are akin with them.
