THE BOHEMIAN GODDESS
A womenswear style to never go out of fashion, while never taking the spotlight, is most definitely the ever recurring boho-chic. The bohemian style has been part of womenswear collections for countless seasons, it an essential link in collections for numerous fashion houses. The sentiment of boho became popular in the late 1960s, often connected to the hippie movement, and ever since it is continuously called upon as an irreplaceable source of inspiration.
The main boho features are natural colors, floral patterns, ethnic inspired prints and colour patterns, as well as an escape to multiple layers and never-ending ruffles.
Each print has a different tale to tell. This ruffled silk-georgette gown from Gucci will enliven even the darkest of Autumn days. Simply slip on a pair of embellished satin mules for a comfort but strong attitude.
