The New Festival

Superwoman inspired from Puckoo Couture

Headpieces and Jewellry to complete the look

On Friday, I had the opportunity to attend the opening party of the Paradise pop-up shop at the Island in Bristol for two of the coolest local designers: Puckoo Couture and Ayasha (check out their fb pages here and here for more info). They listed their clothing as 'festival wear', but it was mostly leggings, bodysuits, oversized statement jewellry, that was more Burning Man than Woodstock. Is it finally happening? The hippy-dippy festival backlash from the new generation of cool kids? I started to suspect that all wasn't right within the festival camp as there were less of those fake daisy-chain headbands (not a fan, as you've guessed!) and more oversized feathers, jewels and spandex. All I can say is that the look is fresh, new and in keeping with the current 90's resurgence. Behold the look of summer 2013.
