Hippie Fashion at MFA in Boston

“When once I got to America I fell in love with hippie culture, and I’ve always wanted to live in the country and grow organic vegetables.” By Jamaica Kincaid.

The emerging hippie culture of the late 1960s and early 1970s rejected the dictates of Paris haute couture, adopting instead an eclectic, highly individual look, mixing vintage and ethnic clothing with fashions inspired by contemporary psychedelic Pop art, nature, fantasy, and ethnographic art. Learn more about this fascinating period in cultural history with our “Hippie Chic” catalogue, and shop our exhibition-inspired gifts.

“I was raised around a lot of artists, musicians, photographers, painters and people that were in theater. Just having the art-communal hippie experience as a child, there wasn’t a clear line that was drawn. We celebrated creative experience and creative expression. We didn’t try and curtail it and stunt any of that kind of growth.” By Jared Leto.

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Avenue of the Arts 465 Huntington Avenue Boston, MA 02115
