For the first time ever, the Coachella music festival is sprawling itself not just across the Californian desert, but across two full weekends. Day one kicks off today, the excitement palpable both to those already there and to those waiting in the wings for the repeat showing next weekend. Those heading to neither may just be lapping up the anticipation of other upcoming blips on the festival calendar.
Staying hydrated (and caffeinated) may all be an important part of the planning, but so is looking the part. We’ve already taken you through some festival outfit ideas that play to spring’s trends, but if you’re still stuck for inspiration there’s nothing like beautiful visuals to really romance your imagination. For that, we turn to photographer Renee Rodenkirchen.
Styled by Alexandra Loeb, Rodenkirchen’s shoot On The Road manifests the festival spirit into hazy light-filled photographs and outfits that marry a hippie sentiment with current trends. An outfit of Stone Cold Fox’s double-slit skirt and bell sleeved tunic couldn’t be more spot on; flower garlands, layerings of wooden beads, hats and headscarves are the accessories to look out for in Loeb’s styling that secure the festival-chic feeling into every look.
Taking cues from nature and the history of the music scene couldn’t be more fitting regardless of whether it’s the Coachella desert or a mud-filled grassy festival ground. Either way, there’s plenty to be inspired by in this shoot for Lilogi. View it in full at the gallery above.
