Inspired by the disco divas before her, LYDA VEGA is a star at the forefront of the Marrakech underground night scene. From Donna Summer, indisputable queen of the ‘70s discothèque boom to jet-setting actress Talitha Getty and yé-yé girl Françoise Hardy, we take a look at our muses’ muses, and their inimitable style.
Donna Summer epitomised disco through the decades after shooting to stardom with “Love to Love You”, a 16-minute dance track injected with R&B, funk and Euro beats. Sequins, stripes, sharp silhouettes and bold accessories all hallmarks of her glam style, it’s no surprise her edge-meets-elegance aesthetic is an inspiration to LYDA.
Forefront of pop scene in the 60s, singer and actress Françoise Hardy was an inspiration to many musicians, artists and designers of her time, including Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Paco Rabanne, whose disc-o dresses she famously wore. Striped tees, bold shades, mini skirts, luxe leather jeans and high-waisted flares are all signatures of the French style star.
Part of the European Jet Set in the ‘60s, actress, model and socialite Talitha Getty pioneered effortless bohemian-chic. Famous for a photograph taken by Patrick Lichfield on a rooftop in 1969 dressed in a kaftan, harem pants and white leather boots, Getty was responsible for putting Marrakech on the fashion map.
