Spring 2015 Prêt-à-Porter: Native American Girl

Spring 2015 Prêt-à-Porter: Native American Girl

Seeing Native American Girls on the runway for Spring 2015 is a bit of a surprise, but maybe a logical one when reminiscing the exuberant use of feathers last season. Don’t dig to deep when re-creating this theme to your own style; Next to the use of the obvious feathers we see (Native American) ingredients such as fringes, abstract prints and short leather dresses. That’s exactly what they worked with at Etro: You have your poncho, the fringes and the moccasins completing a look we know from Isabel Marant in her earlier days. Fendi created a more abstract clean-cut vision, they sliced fabric to create fringes. Without the styling these garments aren’t “Native American” anymore. Same goes for Giambatista Valli, they put the Native American Girl in a sixties time-warp and dressed her in white. To conclude this story we must mention the fringes again, there were a lot them at different shows. Mostly used with a retro seventies vibe for short skirts, dresses and accessories.
