Gypsy Caravan

 In Feature, Style


This season, don’t be afraid to wander into unfamiliar territory. With exotic influences apparent in runway looks aplenty, you won’t be the only fashion-savvy shopper who wants to stray from her comfort zone. Your best bet? Make like top trendsetters Rossella Jardini, Peter Dundas, Anna Molinari and Angela Missoni, and start south of the border. Inspired by Spanish tradition, these designers created wildly eclectic pairings that are rife with colorful embroidery, expressive prints, floral embellishments and dresses befitting a Flamenco dancer. The result is as luxe as it is bohemian—and is decidedly easy to recreate. Simply work a combination of piled-on scarves, peasant tops and handkerchief hems, and don’t forget to stock up on highly decorative handbags. If you’re going to brave new ground, make certain you’re suitably armed.
