Much to the relief to those who refuse to revisit frosted lipstick, the '70s appear to be displacing the '90s as fashion's favored decade. Malyn Joplin will help move the needle with a new line inspired by her hard-partying, bell bottom-loving aunt, Janis.

Made for Pearl (a reference to the Janis's alter ego) is meant to reeducate the current generation of misinformed festival-goers. "They're thinking Nicole Richie gave them this [boho chic] style inspiration, but that's wrong," says Joplin. "It was Janis who gave it to them."

Burnout velvet kimonos, rompers, and other pieces from the American-made collection are available online and at boutiques such as Principessa in Venice Beach and the Kardashian's Dash locations.—Lauren Berger
