Ethno chic

Fashion draws inspiration from folk roots around the globe

Tradition is at the source from tribal embroidery to floral prints that become trends in the hands of fashion designers and labels. The art of Peruvian craftsmen are reproduced in Sacai's flared, long or midi skirts, embroidered, fringed or with floral prints. The prints in Peter Pilotto's dresses and blouses are reminiscent of the land of the Rising Sun whereas the cashmere cardigans with jacquard patterns by Alanui call to mind Native Americans, just like in the multicoloured coats with tassels by Etro and Jessie Western. The geometrical and jacquard patterns by Diesel Black Gold take us to the land of Eskimos and igloos instead.
