Native Notes

 It began with the feathered earrings, a bit of the Missoni print but now I am addicted to all things Navajo. I love the geometric shapes and the Fair Isle prints, though I have always been partial to a good pattern. The 'New Native' was particularly popular at Proenza Schouler and Matthew Williamson.

   From the folksy to the edgy (I particularly love Balmain's luxury take on the look and Pringle's practical, monotone detailing), there is a way for everyone to nurture their inner native.

 I have already succumbed to Miss Selfridge's bodycon skirt version. My male friend literally could not believe I was wearing a knitted skirt; well my grandma would be proud.

  2. This outfit is beautiful ... your skirt is gorgeous! totally gorgeous.
    I've seen the totemic, native trends lately and I love how much color and 'expression' they carry.
    Vivid, bright and neons will never alarm me. I can wear them like my second skin.
