Floral And Tribal | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aThis spring and summer we are jumping back in ‘60s fashion when flowers and tribal prints seemed to have disappeared in the hippies’ era. People are migrating and the world is moving all around us. We perceive a far away race, its food, colors or traditional tribal symbolism more exotic than our race and we want to wear its flavors. Primitive art, street art, graffiti and cubist influence it’s all mixed in this season of spring.
Flowers are for the men’s fashion as well. Hawaiian shirts, color block, graphic art have been seen in all runways from Paris to New York.
It feels like the great escape to the end of the earth, or just the escape from our daily reality.

Make up is whatever you like it to be: heavy, as the thick ‘80s-style eyeliner, or lite to create a soft and natural look, discreet minimalist look or even a boyish look.

I don’t know how much of this extravagance we will see in the streets, but just like everything else, it is a matter of proportions.
Large flowers or bright colors that sit on a large derrière are not appealing.
A long dress on a short person is dreadful.
Thick heels and chunky shoes make a woman with large calves look very stucky.
A heavy make up during the daytime is sign of vulgarity.
Heavy tribal jewelry is OK for the office, if nothing else competes with it.

Fantasy in our wardrobe doesn’t hurt. Ultimately fashion must serve to purpose of making us attractive, youthful, à la page and tastefully smart. Ciao,
