House of Holland looked to the era for its collection, with funky floral print worked across shirts, dresses and skirts in brazen tones of red, orange, yellow and green all helping to create the hippie chic vibe.

Floral patchwork jeans, pink bags and a bomber jacket that read ‘Chief Fluffer’ gave character to the wacky offerings which appealed to the younger crowd.
