FASHIONWEEK Spring 2007: Fiandaca’s Ladies Who Lunch & Like Bling. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG & PODCAST
Summary: Starting with a bright, white straw hat reminiscent of what an old time rodeo queen or baton-twirling majorette might sport, Fiandaca’s lunching dames wouldn’t have looked out of place anywhere that over-the-top glamour is required. Replete with details like fringe, skirts fashioned from 20s’esque tiers of shimmery beads, rhinestone buttons, handkerchief’esque skirts made from layer upon layer of leaf-shaped pieces of fabric, and suits and cocktail frocks in every hue in a box of crayons, 80s glam- & power-fest Dynasty is back-back-back, except now, one stops the show (or ends it in this case) in a floor length black number complete with a black-feathered Indian chief “headdress” that also reaches to the floor & trails along behind.
Color Palette: white, cream with gold, navy, navy & white, red paired with canary yellow, lavender, mint green, green & pink florals, black & red florals, black & white gingham, peach, white with red polka dots, and even a touch of black PVC.
Textures & Details: straw hats, asymmetry, rhinestone buttons, beads & fringe, feather-inspired skirts, trim & prints, florals, and an explosion of color.
Key looks: Pastel lunching-lady suits & dresses, full skirted dresses in florals, colorful cocktail gear, funky shrunken straw cowboy-style hats.
