Sneak peek: Barrio Vintage Psycho-Tropic fashion show
(from FrolicHawaii.com 6/10/15 – Amanda Stevens)
Barrio Vintage puts on one fashion showcase a year, and it’s usually epic. There’s already buzz about this year’s Psycho-Tropic theme chosen by partners Bradley Rhea and Jonathan Saupe: 1960s and ’70s tropical psychedelia from a time of sensory freedom and style exploration.
Thursday’s fashion showcase is at The Manifest. We got the exclusive first look at some of it — organic earthy elements, pops of vibrant acid floral and graphic prints. Cool stuff from Chinatown’s fashion-forward vintage boutique.
“Imagine post-mod distopic,” Rhea says of this late ’60s purple jumper. “The colors are a bit off, disjointed but interesting.”
I fell in love with this Chinese meets tropic ensemble with a Keone Sportswear label, circa 1960s or early ’70s.
Paiko has partnered with A. Wattz Dezigns to create one-of-a-kind living jewelry for the show — air plants paired with shells, crochet circles and beads. So cool.
