From Paris to New York, tribal-influenced prints were all over the runways.
Navajo Print is known as “Native” fashion trend. Also is one of the most controversial trends of the season since, Ben Shelly, Navajo Nation President begun an civil legal action in late February to stop Urban Outfitters and its subsidiaries from misappropriating the Navajo trademark and name.
It started, by all accounts, with Proenza Schouler’s spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection shown last fall, which shrewdly reworked as stylish and urban the muted earth colors and stylized geometries characteristic of much Southwestern design. Then was Isabel Marant and more designers who joined the train to Navajo Hypster trend.
Navajo consists in bold graphic form and vibrant hues based on Navajo traditional patterns and Southwestern details in leather stitching and symbols make an appearance in accessories.
It is perfect to brighten up your cold-weather wardrobe.
How to wear Navajo?
Proportions are everything to style this trend. Fringing, beading, leather and colored tile prints are enough to fit your look I guess?
That’s why you would look better wearing leggings or skinny-fitted jeans than loose clothes like boyfriend pants.
Navajo looks really ethnical and printed, with a lot of personality itself after all, the key items at Navajo Trend are knit ponchos, wool coats or oversized jumpers.
Of course there are softer ways to wear the look like beaded accessories, scarfs or fringed boots.
And one more tip, Navajo looks amazing with FUR.
