Boho Is Back!
Marc Jacobs, aka Zelig of the Zeitgeist, seems to have jumpstarted yet another trend: Boho 2.0. First glimpsed on Jacobs’ spring runway, peasant tops quickly cropped up again in Milan, running the gamut from colorful romantic (opaques and florals) to naughty hippie (see-through neutrals). Etro offered embellished polish, while both Luisa Beccaria and Alberta Ferretti made the case for boho boudoir. Meanwhile, D&G’s floral-gasmic garden party-goer got in on the game, as did the woman summering in Karl Lagerfeld’s seventies Saint-Tropez collection for Fendi. Like Jacobs’, it hewed close to the trend’s Rive Gauche roots. But while Jacobs was quick to reference YSL as his inspiration, something tells us the late couturier’s old frenemy Karl wouldn’t be as forthcoming.
