As they say, Paris is the Fashion Capital of the World.
That’s why, when we were there in January for Paris Deco-Off, we kept our eyes peeled for any trends we could spot on the horizon for the Spring/Summer 2018 season.
And that’s when it hit us:
Tribal is trending.
We first noticed this trend when attending the fabric previews from Pierre Frey and Elitis:
Then, on my way home from Paris, I again came across the classic combination of warm tones, vibrant patterns, and feather and fringe accents while strolling through the airport.
This time by the preeminent women's handbag and leathergoods designer, LONGCHAMP .
Since we've been home, we have continued to see tribal patterns pop up all around us, from fashion runways to our favorite fabric lines.
The iconic fabric brand, Schumacher, even launched a Tribal Chic collection this Spring.
Honestly, whether or not you're a fan of tribal pattern, it's so refreshing to see the pendulum swinging back to maximalism -- Where color, pattern, accessories, and the “more is more” mindset get to have their moment once again.
