We’re heading for a psychedelic summer. What with dancefloors from Dalston to Miami being moved by a mix of 60s psyche pop, Balearic grooves and extended disco freakouts it’s time for some colour. And they don’t come freakier than this T from 80s purple. Reminiscent of the cover of classic Acid House compilation Balearic Beats Vol 1, that big, trippy eye is one part Haight Ashbury and two parts Space, Ibiza.
Combine with white jeans and hi-tops for a proper late-80s look. For a more subtle take on psychedelic, try mixing a flash of bright colour – whether neckerchief or T-shirt print – with slim denims and leather ankle boots for a Mod-turning-hippy nuance. See you on the dancefloor!
