TREND INSPIRATION FOLK
Fashion’s current love is to pull from tradition and heritage, and there was a wealth of global influence to be seen on the season’s catwalks, carrying a strong underlying message of cultural inclusion. Russian and Folk inspiration was a recurring theme in monochrome and bold colour combinations. For women consider tassels, fringing, embroidery (Valentino’s artisanal embroidery ticks all boxes) and quirky detailing as with Dolce & Gabbana’s jewelled sunglasses or Louboutin’s Venetian slipper.
