Util­ity and ro­mance min­gle in Out of Africa-in­spired pieces

Weekend Herald - Canvas - - FASHION - Dan Ahwa Ge­or­gia O’Ke­effe At Home by Ali­cia Inez Guz­man.

Sun-kissed ter­rains and a pal­ette in­spired by the earth never ceases to cap­ture the imag­i­na­tion of artists, po­ets and writ­ers. The same can be said for de­sign­ers and re­tail­ers, who are look­ing to the great out­doors for in­spi­ra­tion. Like Meryl Streep in her role as Baroness Karen von Blixen (nee Di­ne­sen) in Out of Africa, the film’s cos­tumes have since made an im­pact on fash­ion for their mix of util­ity and ro­mance; linen dresses, time-worn and weath­ered; sa­fari coats and straw hats con­tinue to make an im­pres­sion. Whether it’s tidy week­end dress­ing or sum­mer work­wear that segues into the New Year, in­vest in light­weight knits and fab­rics that are soft to the touch and in­spire an easy, lan­guid mood just right for the sea­son.
