Designers have flirted with Woodstock style for decades, going back to Yves Saint Laurent and his peasant tops. But what about young designers who are more likely to wax nostalgic about “Desperately Seeking Susan” and Nineties grunge? WWD asked them for their takes on the era’s fringe, flowers, beads and bell bottoms. The results ranged from Alexander Wang’s bare-all babe to Jeremy Laing’s cheeky cartoon pun.

As for Bensoni’s hippie chick, designer Sonia Yoon noted there’s more of her to come: “It’s a lil’ hint of our inspiration for spring,” she said.
