Love Beads

Topman Design showed menswear for Spring/Summer 2015 at London Fashion Week in the middle of June 2014. Having observed the omnipresent Seventies revival (as here, and here), I had been wondering how long it would take somebody to bring out Love Beads again, that once-universal accessory. Topman had them  along with many remarkable facsimiles of the blue jeans I wore in high school.

Maybe boys in 70s London were wearing pink jeans (as above) when they were not wearing blue jeans. I did not see any pink jeans that I remember in California in those years. The high waist I do remember. The no belt I remember. The suede track shoes in sorbet colors  another possibly imaginary reference that seems to ring true.
