I’m seeing a lot of inspiration from south of the border in fashion this spring/summer, and I’m liking it. Think Latin-American cowboy country. Photo-stories in magazines (Elle Italia, Vogue Australia, Velvet Italia, Vogue Germany…) are channelling this far SouthWest style, using aztec prints and jewelry, bright, vivid hues and lots of big hats (with flat wide brims, or cowboy style).
It’s back to the seventies at Marc by Marc Jacobs for this fall. It’s as if the collection for Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 (which had that kind of 70s inspiration) got inspired by the characters from Scooby Doo. Am I crazy? Seriously, it was the first thought I had after looking at this collection (and I mean this in the coolest way ever).
