Out of Africa
MULTIPLE CHOICE - Luis Espiritu Jr. () - April 15, 2012 - 12:00am

Wonder where style is traveling to nowadays? Jet-setters, A-Listers and fashion followers are catching the African trail from the Serengeti to the runways and into one’s everyday wardrobe. International designer Michael Kors Spring-Summer 2012 collection showcases an outstanding presentation of modern Africa. The household name in American fashion, known for contemporary sportswear, is creating a statement of tribal luxury. The season’s luxe trapping is giving sports a chic edge as seen in vibrant feathers, glittering sequins and opulent python detailing. Wild tribal prints, bold-tie-dye treatments and interesting edges are setting the season with a feeling that’s born to be wild.

Classic wear welcomes the wildlife with artisanal textures that come in standout linens, cottons, leather and raffia. Setting the mood of the landscape is a mixed palette of sun-setting hues of sienna, cinnabar and amber; hints of seaside tones such as ivory and blue batik; and earthy appeal of olive and clay. The collection is all laid-back and lounge, presented in a variety of shorts, dresses and long skirts. The jet-setting look can never be complete without practical accents such as oversized slouchy bags, leather wedges and flat sandals. Safari days and nights will never go out of style without a bling in turquoise and gold that definitely creates the ultimate glam statement. The current and captivating feel of Africa is creating an alluring strong presence in the global style scene. Michael Kors Spring-Summer 2012 is all about chic dressing and fashion in the wild.
