This season’s updates make infusing the spirit of the ever stylish ’70s more approachable than ever. The style of an era that was defined by its cultural and political movements now takes a sophisticated twist with nods to bold prints, classic knit vests, and the staple wide-leg pant. Modern interpretations allow for a subtle homage without looking costumey. Embrace the free-loving energy of the time while celebrating the elevated style of the bygone era of boogie.
Louis Vuitton Signature LV Knit T-Shirt
Starting simple, this baseball tee with its retro graphic print just screams roller disco. It has what LV calls a “slightly fitted” cut, meaning its meant to leave you with just the right amount of breathing room.
GANT Oversized Vest
Cozy and a little out of the ordinary, this thick knit colourblock stripe vest still screams ’70s in its own way. Pair it with a collared shirt and khakis, and you’re off to the races.
Cartier Santos De Cartier Bracelet
Big, bold, and gold was the name of the game in the days of disco, and something so simple as this chainlink Santos De Cartier bracelet fits the bill perfectly. That said, it’s subdued enough that it could pass just as well when you’re not feeling those vintage vibes.
Prada Chelsea Boots
Though the Chelsea boot dates back to the 1800s, it saw a surprising return to favour in the disco era — in part due to a surprising pop culture plot twist. Believe it or not, white Chelsea boots were part of the original Stormtrooper uniform in the Star Wars trilogy.
Loewe Military Messenger Bag
Much like the Chelsea boot, messenger bags always seem to cycle back around. For a truly luxurious taken on the utilitarian classic, Loewe’s compact version pairs soft calfskin leather with a jacquard woven strap.
Saint Laurent Wide-Leg Pant in Velvet
The colour, the cut, the material; everything about these new Saint Laurent pants just scream disco era. Wide legs were all the rage in the day, and the proliferation of velvet — surprising for a dance movement— was extensive to say the least.
Rado True Square Over The Abyss
Less of a “this has disco vibes” to “this would have fit in if it were around back then”, The Rado True Square Over The Abyss is a self-winding psychedelic journey of high tech ceramic timekeeping. Charming by design, and built to last, this reference is a design collaboration with New Delhi artist duo Thukral and Tagra.
Eleventy Wool Contrast Rib-Knit Turtleneck
Intellects, introverts, artsy types, or otherwise, there’ s something oh-so comforting about a nice soft turtleneck. They can be a bit of an acquired taste, but they’re definitely back on trend this year.
Tiffany & Co. Tiffany 1937 Maker’s Signet Ring
As a secondary option for a bold splash of gold — a Tiffany & Co. Signet Ring is as timeless as they come. Not meant to be left blank, these rings are meant to be engraved with one’s monogram or initials.
GANT Jaqco Cord Lace-Up Sneakers
In essence a Chuck Taylor silhouette, which was a style that’s maintained varying degrees of popularity since the beginning of the 20th century, combining it with the quintessentially ’70s corduroy is an interesting way to infuse the era into a modern reinterpretation. GANT claims more ’80s tennis as the inspiration, but we can’t help but feel the faint whispers of disco.
