Earth tones dominated fashion and interiors during the 1970s, partly as a counter-reaction to the psychedelic colours of the 1960s and partly in an attempt to create a calming oasis during a time of political and social upheaval. Many sought to surround themselves with muted and comforting tones that provided grounding, combining them with wood panelling, soft shag carpets and house plants to help create a relaxing escape from the outside world.
Additionally, the Green Revolution of the 60s inspired the back to earth movement of the 70s, with the first Earth Day taking place on the 22nd of April 1970. Concerns for the environment led many to reject the synthetic colours and textiles of the previous decade for natural fabrics and vegetable-based dyes, resulting in a more muted wardrobe.
After experiencing the global lockdowns and uncertain times, Pia was drawn to the comforting earthy tones of the 70s, inspiring our new Amber shade.
