Bold Print - 70's Cut

After a late study of 'Kramer vs Kramer' where Meryl Streep deservingly
triumphed to snatch an oscar, my inner 70’s alter-ego (still struggling for a name) was itching to surface. But lets recap with a snapshot from previous runways, Marrying statement legwear with even bolder and hotter shirt prints is definitely the way to do ‘daring'. Something we’ve seen countless times from AMI, Valentino, Michael Bastian and not forgetting Tom Fords florals for S/S14.

So here goes…for this surprisingly warm afternoon in London i put together a look that isn’t overly complicated yet doesn’t refrain from being bold and edgy. This 70’s inspired Galliono snake print shirt teamed with a beautiful pair of D&G double pleated trousers alone could make even the dogs fashion converts on the sidewalk. But i chose to carry around a croc print bag for added texture finishing with clean pair of Ermenegildo Zegna dress shoes.

Bold prints are definitely a stir, dividing opinion on how bold is too bold, and what extremes one can pull off. But sticking to either bold prints on the bottom half or the top is a great way to reduce those shocking 'OHH's into pleasant 'AHH's.
