This week's key look for Spring/Summer 2010 definitely has us feeling a little fall-ish…unusual colours, textures and an injection of sex appeal reveal the darker side of this Spring/Summer.
Items Pictured Above: 1) Sheer Blouse – ModCloth – $62.99, 2) Bowler Hat – Prance and Swagger – $42, 3) Harem Pants – French Connection via ASOS - $130, 4) Vintage Purse – Verseau Vintage – $72, 5) Jazz Shoe – Jeffrey Campbell via Solestruck – $99.95
I've used the title 'Prohibition' with a certain degree of artistic license. The trend obviously inspired by the thirties, evokes a certain bohemian inspiration, inspired by jazz, speakeasy's, flappers but isn't exclusively tied to this historic period.
This key look works as the perfect umbrella to many trends, some of which we'll be bringing to you this week, including: Menswear, Flapper, Fringing and Underwear as Outerwear…look out for more jazz shoes, embellished skirts and Depression era inspired suits.
On the runway this key look appeared in countless collections, subtly hidden in pieces and out there in full collections.
The look on the runway: 1) Oscar De La Renta 2) Collette Dinnigan 3) Ralph Lauren 4) Christian Dior 5) Dolce and Gabbana 6) 3.1 Phillip Lim
