Artisan Quarter

15 Feb 2016

This latest boho-inspired trend is a natural choice whether you're in the country side or in the city.

Do you wish you’d been born in an era of carefree style, romantic lace and rustic charm, yet couldn’t imagine life without your skinny jeans and Stan Smiths? That’s precisely why we love the Artisan Quarter trend, which makes the winter-to-spring transition a breeze!

This season, we can’t get enough of natural-looking raw and silky materials, such as cotton and linen. The texture combinations are endless: from lacy to sheer to airy and fluid, to boho prints and trompe-l’œil designs. But most alluring of all is the marriage of textiles with equal urban and rustic appeal.

This trend was tailor-made for creative gals who don’t know the meaning of routine! A focus on layering and pairing neutral pieces with pop-colour accessories means you can change up your look every day.
 

Have a look through your mother’s or your grandmother’s old things for hidden gems that will jazz up your current pieces! Silk scarves, vintage pins, braided belts, canvas jackets, lace camis—the idea is to mix and match textures and colours for a casual, feminine look.

Fashion isn't something that exists only in clothing. Fashion is all around us, borne upon the wind. It's a matter of intuition. Fashion is in the sky and streets.

Infuse your urban wardrobe with the poetry of the countryside. Try white shirts with blue jeans, pearl-grey sweaters with khaki skinnies, sailor stripes with lemon yellow: combinations that scream both picnicking in Central Park and strolling through strawberry fields in mid-July!
