Valentino tribute to Chagall




Valentino collection has been all over media, but its details worth more attention. All beautiful patterns on its fabrics almost entirely handmade, the abundance of intricate embroidery and applique are absolutely stunning and fascinating. Russian and Ukranian styles were rediscovered in a new way. Inspired by Mark Chagall, traditional Slavic folk motives were the starting point for Valentino’s couture collection. The color varies from burgundy to blue like in Chagall’s paintings.

Boho babes of the XX century

Who were the style icons for Boho babes of the XXI century like Sienna Miller, Kate Moss and Olsen twins? Whos legacy they inherited and transformed into what we call nowadays Boho Chic?
Undoubtedly, Brigitte Bardot was one of free spirits at the time. Better known for discovering St Tropez we still owe her for bringing bohemian fashion to the village.

Another example is Jane Birkin, who shared with Bardot not only Serge Gainsbourg, but love for bohemian style. Her comfortable and often revealing clothes became her symbol as well as famous Hermes Birkin bag. Her choice was between jeans and shirts with deep decolettage and translucent boho dresses. 

Elisabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren contribute their admiration of the style through numerous headpieces.
