Safari, So Good

Natural colors and wild chevron prints journey out of Africa.

 

So, a Kenyan excursion is not in the cards. Maybe it’s for the best. Your idea of a fab vacation never really involved wielding binoculars and bouncing around in a jeep. Still, witnessing vivid landscapes, being “one with nature” and wearing the cute khaki clothes that seem crucial for “roughing it” have always (since Meryl Streep did it, anyway) been appealing. Luckily, thanks to a number of designers’ African mindsets for spring, dressing the part is definitely doable. Simply sport geometric tribal prints—like those shown by Proenza Schouler—or, work pieces in the same earthy color palette backed by fashion’s arbiter of luxe, Michael Kors. You’ll instantly look safari-chic. As for canoodling with the wild, you can always go out without bug spray.
