I mentioned it back in September during New York Fashion Week that a major trend for the Spring season will be of a tribal aesthetic. Well, the spring season has not even started and a lot of fashionistas and magazines have already started the trend.
A lot of designer have been going down the road of the ethnic/tribal print trend, most noted was Michael Kors, Burberry, Donna Karen and Diane Von Furstenberg (L-R)
On the publication side, Vogue Australia based its December issue around this theme featuring actress Isabel Lucas. Numerous magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and W have had editorials centred around it
On the high street, numerous shops are also beginning to stock a lot of tribal and geometric prints, however that would be regarded as a natural reaction because the clothes on the high street are often influenced by what the big designers are doing. But H&M have taken this a step further by collaborating with print designer Marni to produce a capsule collection just in time for the spring season. This collection will feature quite a number of ethic prints.
Even a lot of celebrities like Kate Bosworth, Solange and fashion pioneer Anna Wintour have been spotted rocking the trend.
It is only a matter of time before street style lovers and other publication also follow this trend.
