It’s no surprise that tribal prints are heating up everyone’s summer wardrobes this year – I’m going gaga over them too! I’ve been spotting Aztec, Navajo, Ikat and tribal prints all over the place whenever I go shopping. You should add some of these pretty prints to your closet – you won’t be sorry!
STORES & DESIGNERS THAT HAVE PRINTS IN THEIR SS-12 COLLECTIONS –
* Mara Hoffman – I am so glad I came across her! She’s a New York based fashion designer who launched her first line 12 years ago. Her prints are very ethnic and vibrant; she draws inspiration for her collections from nature, world travel and fantasy. – http://www.marahoffman.com/
* Muzungu Sisters – I first read about Tatiana and Dana in Vogue India’s April issue and curiousity got the better of me. These two women travel to villages and artisan markets in the west, and draw inspiration from the tribes living there to design their own bags, scarves and accessories. – http://www.facebook.com/muzungusisters
Other folks and brands selling tribal prints are Neu Look, Steve Madden, Accessorize and CC Skye.
