The sixties are used as inspiration in the fall / winter collections 2014/15 by Gucci, Versace, Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton. The autumn-winter models by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Louis Vuitton are based on the timeless cuts of the 1960s, which subtly emphasize the female body, combined with overknees boots in smooth leather, military details, turtlenecks, furs. At Gucci you can see luxurious, glittering A-line dresses and large hats, cognac-colored leather shoes and ruched leather skirts; or straight-cut suits, shift dresses and mini skirts. Hedi Slimane for Louis Vuitton relies on knee-high patent leather boots and capes. With the Valentinos tunics with a color pattern, the comfort width in the waist area is greater. There are also flat shoes and mini boxy handbags.

Whimsical water-colored prints combined with a draped scarf, ankle-high ankle boots and a lambskin jacket have been developed by the Burberry designers as a reminiscence of the boho artist and lettering plate Christopher Bailey.
