One of my favorite movies is Almost Famous. I love the story, the characters, the dialogue, the music...literally everything. Truth be told, if I'm having writer's block, this is the movie that gets me out of it every single time. The styling in this film captures exactly what was happening in early 7o's fashion. Kate Hudson's iconic character, Penny Lane, dreams of going to Morocco and her style in this film stays with you long after the credits end. It's that gorgeous shearling coat. That coat is her armor. It's her safety net. It's the piece that transformed her from Lady Goodman into Penny Lane.
I like to think Penny would approve of today's boho-inspired looks. Lanvin's entire Fall 2015 collection, with its nod to Morocco, seemed designed with Penny in mind. This season is full of brocade, shearling, flared denim, crop tops, suede, velvet, band tees, maxis and more. It's the modern take on the 70's that make these pieces look less vintage and more like Penny all grown up.
