Zoe Kravitz Now Appreciates Her Parents’ Hippie Style

“I used to be a little embarrassed by how she and my dad would dress, but now I steal their clothes all the time. My dad has totally taken my Cat Stevens T-shirt, but it’s OK, I have his Black Flag one and that’s amazing. And my mum…There’s this little vintage store where she lives in Topanga Canyon [California] called Hidden Treasures. It’s just a local spot, but we’ve been living there forever, so my mum will often donate her stuff. She took a bunch of stuff down while I was away and I went there when I got back and bought five of her things. I got home and was like, ‘I can’t believe I just paid for your clothes!’ Out of everything in the store, I’d bought my mother’s things.”

– Zoe Kravitz, who stars in “X-Men: First Class,” chats with ASOS about growing up with super boho Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet as parents. The insane coolness of Lisa Bonet aside (such a style icon!), I totally relate to Zoe on this. My dad was, is, and always will be a hippie — in perspective, definitely, but also sartorially, from the top of his ponytailed, yellow-spectacled head to the tips of his Birkenstock-clad toes. Don’t even get me started on the battered Volkswagon van — with the political bumper stickers and Rastafarian curtains — he took me to school in! As a kid, I’ll admit, his look totally embarrassed me, but when I became a teenager, I started stealing his vintage Ts and worn-in Levi’s. Seriously, I wish I had his “Jesse Jackson ’88″ campaign T-shirt for my summer wardrobe… [Huffington Post]
