Sunday, 02 January 2011

Ethno StyleWithout the ethnic style in fashion, the trends of the present time would go deep into the sleek and glamour expression. Though, the ethnic style is like a new blood or a fresh breath. It delivers brilliance and uniqueness which are thorny to produce when almost everything is created and practiced. Ethno-style is like the rejuvenating fashion injection. It is a good tool to mark it as a complementing element and as the recognition of love to the particular nation.

Hippy style traces

Ethno-style is often called folklore or public. And we have to be thankful to hippies to make it popular in fashion tendencies on the permanent base. After the rigid and straightforward futuristic times of the 50s when Andre Courreges and Cristobal Balenciaga were the key trendsetters with the 60s with aspiration to natural elements.

The movement of hippies enabled the time to refer to the national costumes of Asian, African and American nations. Those who do not follow hippy style can also adopt some elements without any prejudice to the image. Even those who think hippy style is nothing, started to furiously adopt the style to the everyday wear like Indian sari, moccasins, luxury painted kerchiefs, long fluffy and floral skirts.

Ethnic accessories appear the elements we can fall in love with the folk style, even no other thing is adopted. Fandangle made from beads or thread-weaved, stepped necklaces, wooden accessories, big bracelets that embrace the wrist are the entire sphere for inspiration and building of the personal ethnic image.

Public appreciation

The motifs of fashion of different nations are openly exploited in the apparel, especial summer wear. There is no need to wait until the season is announced to refer to African or Indian culture. Anyone is welcome to take particular element and adapt to the everyday clothes.

This is the great advantage of the folklore style. Thanks to the intensity, recognizability and versatile edges, the style is ideal to complement the image in the summer time, create the nice temper with vintage and rare details and it can become the style of life. today it is not reproached when a young girl appears wearing a half-transparent tunic, a puffy skirt with floral pattern with patchwork elements, wrap up into the heavy tippet or show off with a dozen of bracelets worn at a time. And she might not even guess that the image refers absolutely to the ethno-style that is beyond the time.

Such experiments are welcomed at the catwalks by the fashion designers who cannot stay indifferent to the ethnic style. The first designer who introduced the extravagant style to match the elegant collections was Yves Saint-Laurent in the 60s. The great couturier took the inspiration from every part of the world. Shows by Yves Saint-Laurent were abound in the luxury of the silky china, juicy Morocco or the plainness of peasant Russia.

The Kenzo collection also presented eclectics. And thanks to the Japanese fashion the world was introduced to the match of business style to the folklore motifs, as well as classic and sports elements.

Jean-Paul Gaultier is the fashion designer who is the adept to the ethno-style since the 70s and he regularly uses its elements in his collections.

In the year 2010 the collection by Diane von Furstenberg presented ethno-style apparel with the dresses flowing down, plenty of bracelets and golden sandals for spring and summer seasons. Dries van Noten launched the collection with the minimalist casual elements that is perfect for strolling in sun along the streets. Gucci introduces light and simple ethnic prints into the business dandy suits. Sass&Bide mixes the folklore with the space elements of models.

A majority of fashion designers tend to decorate the summer collections with ethno-style elements, including followers of classic Chanel, Giorgio Armani and Oscar de la Renta.

Fashion shows for spring and summer 2010 are assigned to create the ethnic appearance with the help of accessories and jewels. A stripped necklaces, chains, metal Gipsy bracelets and those with gems are highly appreciated this season.
