Style Scrapbook: Psychedelic Daze

Uncategorized

It’s summer, and I’m eager to take a weird trip with out of the box prints, holographic metallics, decadent jewels, and accessories that are a bit surreal… Psychedelic inspiration is easy to find in trippy colors, off-beat works of art, and especially in vintage imagery — the summer of love can provide endless ideas, perfect for summer festivals, or every day demonstrations of peace and love. See below for some great inspiration and clothing and accessories that you can shop now to get the perfect psychedelic look.

Simple Minds – Alberta Ferretti Fall Winter 2013, Milan

collections, Uncategorized

Alberta Ferretti Fall Winter 2013 Milan Fashion Week

Opened, Sasha Luss – Closed, Elizabeth Erm

Authenticity and familiarity were the aims of this collection from Alberta Ferretti. There was something a bit simplistic but without shying away from Ferretti’s trademark romantic details.

A few standout trends included a tendency towards shades of blue, black and white, traditional tartan, the use of rich velvet silks, and a mixing of bright jewel tones. The combination of which marked a standout collection from Ferretti, a departure from the wholly sequined looks from spring, and a hint of fresh modernism that’s sure to be trending come Fall.
