Summer is upon us (apparently) and from the loose shawls and eye-popping Saharan headscarves at Kenzo, to Bedouin-esque lace turbans at Oscar de la Renta, jungle fever at Tibi and the jaw-droppingly-covetable corporate castaway glamour seen at Prada; the unfamiliar, otherworldly and outlandish have touched down in a gloriously avant-garde jumbo jet. It’s time to get global.
Prada s/s 2010
With designers sourcing their inspiration from far-flung and exotic destinations across the globe, this season the world really is your oyster…
Kenzo s/s 2010
Work jungle fever in pacific brights and exotic florals – or look for subtle references like this dramatically diaphanous hummingbird print number from Tibi…
Tibi s/s 2010
Shift your style frontier East and work sumptuous silk sarongs in intricate asian prints and spice market hues…
Dries Van Noten s/s 2010
Prints not your style? (Or perhaps you just need a, well-earned, optical break?) why not work the traveller trend Imperial style in chic safari-suits a la Oscar de la Renta, or go for weatherbeaten wayfarer appeal in casual sunbleached denims and washed-out cottons with a rough-hewn finish.
