MIX THE LATE BAROQUE LOOK WITH
CONTEMPORARY EMBELLISHMENTS AND YOU'LL
BE RIGHT ON-TREND WITH YOUR WARDROBE
AND ACCESSORIES. BY MATTHEW KRITIS
MARIE ANTOINETTE SURELY WOULD have
been a repeat customer for spring 2017.
With fashion and accessories in an opulent
feast of Rococo-inspired prints, lavish
e1nbellishment and the most decadent
fabrics, this season has brought the late
Baroque period back to front and center.
Florals influence the trends, leading you down an enchanting path
as if you're at the Petit Trianon with the young Queen of Versailles
herself. Look also for gilded pieces, flounce details, luxe fabrics and
3-D trimmings that manage to 1nake an obvious nod to the past
while pushing the wearer into the contemporary. Rock them best
by mixing over-the-top pieces with solid basics. But whether you
prefer your look more traditionally ornate or with a bit of edge, just
re1nember: This season, more is always more.
