A TRIBAL QUEST. Donna Karan, Givenchy, and Valentino ........Get the look for less.




SS14

TREND

Global Nomad....

Sahara baked tones, exotic, spice trail prints, ancient traditional embellishments. SS14 is going on a global journey.......

Donna Karan : Spring/Summer 2014






Donna Karan's collection featured earthy burnt umber, rust and indigo palettes. Both luxurious and exotic, her signature silk jersey was there, but also block-printed linens,
 and exquisite silk georgette's. 

Most models wore low slung chunky leather belts.......
(N.B. to oneself  'Don't forget to dig out those old hip belt's, tucked away in the back of the closet')!


  • Givenchy : Spring/Summer 2014



Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci said of the collection......
"I wanted to explore two cultures - Japan and Africa, and mix them together to create something very strong, very dynamic,
 but with a darkness".

 It was a true tribal gathering.

--------------------------------

  • Valentino : Spring/Summer 2014





Established in 1960.
 It's founder Valentino Garavani, has a simple motto......
"I know what women want," he once said. 
"They want to be beautiful"

(We can but try)!

  1. I tried the rose gold H&M espadrilles on and they're really cute but they wouldn't stay on my feet for some reason. They didn't hold my heel in enough and I've had that trouble with lots of espadrilles this year - I thought they were an easy peasy shoe to buy but apparently not.

    1. I actually have these, and they do seem to stay on ok, although they were a bit big, so I have put an insole in, it also helps on the comfort factor too! xx

  2. Can I have all of please?! Everything you found is just amazing as always! I forget about how great the Mango (there isn't one very close to me, boo!) brand is, I must go there soon to see all of it. Loving this trend of course ;-)

    1. Hi Michelle, it is pretty cool isn't it? I think it would be a good accessory to have in your life..... not just for this season, but for always! xx

  4. Oh, I really love the silk shirt dress from H&M. I'm thinking of it in terms of the perfect cover up for anyone with skin issues, when around the beach or pool. As for the low slung hip belts, I think I may actually still have one or two of those lurking in the back of my wardrobe as well!!

    1. It would be perfect, but very stylish too! If we can't find our belts, we will have to do a nifty charity shop crawl!! xx
