If your favorite fabrics are tie dye, paisley and floral, and your home is filled with items inspired by far-off lands—then you are probably a bohemian spirit who likes ‘wearable’ art and has a ‘modern global vibe’ style, infused with a sense of ease, freedom and adventure.
The hippie styles of the ’60s and ’70s are getting a luxurious reshaping of imaginative, ethereal statement garments with a compelling bohemian flavor—it’s an evolution we can all embrace in warmer weather: flowy, graceful, feminine, maxi silhouettes embellished and layered with subtle applique and delicate ruffles.
Art is not just for hanging on the wall this this spring and summer—there are loads of great kaleidoscopic fashion finds with tempting technicolor shades and textures defining a key trend. Look for handcrafted embroidery and three dimensional florals. For print and patterns, look for folkloric border designs, transparencies and rich jewel-tones infused with intricate lace and jacquard fabrics.
To help evoke the elaborate nature of the boho trend, artisanal accents such as repeated geometric patterns, fringed elements and beaded borders create a majestic visual appeal. Complement the exotic silhouettes with gorgeous loose, wavy hair, a wide-brimmed hat, and gladiator sandals.
Artisanal fashion is romantic, expressive, and free-spirited—they are special pieces that are truly art-to-wear.
