For many of us it’s getting to that time of year when our minds will be drifting to our summer holidays; whether they have been booked months ago or exist solely in our fantasies, by mid May it’s only natural to be craving a good dose of sun worship and an outlet for our adventurous streak. Luckily for us fashion brings us the perfect match for our explorer-get-away dreams in the form of the global traveller trend. Think bold prints, tie-dye, batik, vibrant tones and rough and ready accessories.
At Burberry, Christopher Bailey delivered perhaps the most iconic take on the trend this season, with bright batik print tailoring, cropped safari jackets and woven raffia accessories.
This striking red number from Bottega Veneta ticks the tribal print trend box as well as giving a nod to the clean cut pleats that have featured on so many catwalks this season.
For a monochrome take on global prints, this Suno ensemble is the perfect understated statement. With a batik inspired oversize print, the cream tint to the fabric keeps the look on traveller trend.
Meanwhile, Michael Kors combined all the tie dye, bright colours and flowing fabrics a girl could wish for; all tied together with suitably sturdy looking cross-body bags and chunky statement footwear. Perfectly practical.
So whether you plan to be jetting off soon to exotic climes, or simply weathering the weather in London this summer, let your wardrobe help to fulfil your every sunny, adventurous daydream.
