Boho style hit the global trail for SS’17, adopting unexpected pairings along her travels. Subtle earthy tones were seen at Etro and Burberry, where models were draped with oversized shawls and trench coats, bringing a touch of heritage against the effortless ruffles and mismatch panels beneath. Yet those silk and chiffon creations were nipped in with tight waist belts to toughen the look and bring it some edge.
What I found most refreshing about this trend was the boundaries it seems to have pushed-gone are the days when boho was a look best suited to the glamorous gap-year island-hopping girl. Alexander McQueen portrayed beautiful gothic-esque dresses and skirts that are for the modern nomad, playing with the juxtaposition of soft and hard, chiffon and leather, print and colour.
There were influences from all four corners of the earth – western fringe and sequin appliqués at Giambattista Valli, silk floral jacquard and 1920’s pressed gold lettering at Etro, intricate exotic embellishments at Cavalli and long gypsy skirts injected with shots of Turquoise at Alberta Ferretti. There quite simply is, something for everyone in this trend.
My favourite..? The modern seduction exuding throughout Alberta Ferretti’s feminine yet punchy boho dresses, cinched by leather belts and worn with small bustiers. Presenting the new global traveller… The passionate spirit of independent women.
