The flower knit is made of a superfine alpaca and wool blend which is round and soft to the touch. This boxy fit crewneck sweater features large “distressed” stitching, with hand crocheted flowers on the front. This charming souvenir of youth has a boxy cut with dropped shoulders and ribbed trims.
‘Flower Power’ was a slogan used during the late 1960s and early 1970s as a symbol of passive resistance and non-violence ideology. It was coined by the American Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in 1965 as a means to transform war protests into peaceful affirmative spectacles. Hippies embraced the symbolism by dressing in clothing with embroidered flowers and vibrant colours, wearing flowers in their hair, and distributing flowers to the public, becoming known as ‘flower children’.
