Spring will be cool and infused with youth culture, and it’s the tie-dye print that says it. Emblematic of the 70’s, this dye returns to center stage for its artisanal side and the character of its nuances which are infinitely declined. At Christian Dior we saw it quite neutral when it is rather neon at Versace. Either way, it comes to awaken a denim delight and sublimate a tanned skin.
Where to buy it: Weekday, Rabens Saloner, Claudie Pierlot
- Bandana print (or cashmere or paisley)
Originating in Persia, the small curved drops called “boteh” have become over the ages a great fashion classic. Whether we call it “paisley”, “cahemire” or “bandana”, the motif is absolutely everywhere in spring-summer 2020. On the catwalks, it shone in a bohemian register still associated with the 70’s at Etro, Celine or Saint Laurent . In an accessible ready-to-wear version, we find its more refined cowboy version borrowed from the famous bandana.

The natural is back at a gallop on all levels in fashion trends! On the one hand there is the obvious need to be more concerned with it, on the other the mad desire to be inspired by it. As a result, the brands give pride of place to natural materials such as linen or leather (Bottega Venetta, Paul Smith), neutral and organic tones (Alberta Ferretti, Hermès) as well as the know-how that highlights them. Braiding, caning, crochet on the program!

After seasons of silence, we hear again about the shorts. We meet him mini here and there on the catwalks like that of Chanel, yet the one that makes us melt is quite different. Super practical, it also becomes super chic in its most trendy version: costume style enriched with darts and pleats. At Max Mara, Chloé, or even Saint Laurent, this neo Bermuda shorts accompanied by his jacket composes the flagship boyish look of the season.

If fine jewelry has been the center of attention in recent seasons, daring is making a comeback. In the crosshairs of trends, the stick chain makes a comeback with an elongated and airy mesh to get noticed. It invites itself in trendy minimalist looks to punctuate a look with its massive mesh less is more. Whether it’s a convict or something else, we wear the chain of this step on a t-shirt or on the skin, inside an oversize shirt collar.

- The surfer necklace or Heishi necklace
On the neck of all the cool girls with wicks “sunkissed“by hours of surfing, the heishi necklace is an emblem of the 90s. Yet, crafted from unique flat beads, it is the descendant of ancestral Native American jewelry. As a necklace or an ankle or wrist bracelet, it is the 2020 version of our summer obsession with cowry shells, to be adopted at the beach or in the city.
