The 70s is one of my favorite eras for fashion with its bohemian styling and gypsy/rock star aesthetic. The most coveted coats gathered inspiration from lady rockers of the time, and Janis Joplin wore the most enviable. Furry trim, embroidery and a dramatic maxi sweep were the details that set my fashion heart afire. The Janis Coat will take you anywhere in boho style, be it the Fillmore West or a Jefferson Airplane concert . . . wow . . . flashback.
