I couldn’t help myself but comment on one of the latest trends this season – Baroque. It seems to be everywhere! It’s uber feminine, sophisticated, and definitely makes a statement. Amongst high street it is Topshop that does some great trousers and dresses with a baroque finish. As far as designers are concerned, It would have to be Dolce & Gabbana.
Baroque’s fashion renaissance popped off in the late 1980s, when Milan-based Gianni Versace turned the Italian artistic tradition into wild pop art, replacing the angels and cherubs of Italian frescos with gold chains, Medusa heads and leopard skins printed on shiny silk. Luckily for us, these gorgeous patterns are firmly back on the fashion agenda. So just think flashy chain prints intertwined with animal and floral motifs on everything from dresses and tops to accessories (for a more low-key look).
