Fashion has proved itself to be a great source of joy, from extreme escapism on the runways to small objects that are a pleasure to look at. For another dose of reverie, dive into the pages of Vogue from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. Photographers such as Helmut Newton, Henry Clarke, Franco Rubartelli, and David Bailey showcased spectacular and psychedelic summer prints on models like Jean Shrimpton and Editha Dussler. The results are immensely fun photos that evoke the free-spirited ethos of the era. And if you see summer as an opportunity to wear bold, happy prints, we’ve found six ways to recreate the look. Lose yourself in this set of groovy images from the archive and let summer’s offering of extraordinary printed kaftans, swimsuits, dresses, and more lift your spirits.

Take a trip to a soothing and stylish oasis, a true print lover’s paradise.
