Put down that white T-shirt. Take off the lit­tle black dress. Hide away your jeans. In­stead, bring the out­doors in with bold blooms and leafy prints to see in the Lu­nar New Year. Those mak­ing a bee­line for the beach should look no fur­ther than Valentino’s boho tiered and patch­work dresses in vary­ing Wil­liam Mor­ris-es­que na­ture prints. Else­where, the brand showed suede jack­ets embroidered with lions, flamin­gos and ele­phants, styled with head­bands and feather earrings that wouldn’t have looked out of place at Coachella. Those en­joy­ing a city break might pre­fer Marc Jacobs’ more ur­ban, mono­chrome birds of par­adise. Airy, light fab­ric in black, white and red palm prints adorned with mega-size mir­rored gems and spat­tered with feath­ers—what a great way to bring a tempt­ing tease of is­land am­bi­ence to the city.
