FROST FASHIONPHOTOS:ANDREEAANGELESCU;NAILARTPHOTOS:ARMANDOSANCHEZ Inspired by Etro Inspired by Emilio Pucci POLISHED LOOK THE RECENT MEDIA FASCINATION WITH FESTIVAL FASHION CERTAINLY HAS CHAMPIONED ITS FAIR SHARE OF CROP TOPS AND WIDE BRIM HATS. Thankfully, the runways tapped into the Summer of Love rather than Coachella for the seasons strongest bohemian looks. Witness the beautifully embroidered tiers on a patchwork dress at Valentino or Alberta Ferrettis white gossamer gown thats delicately stitched where it counts.At Etro, a label long known for its boho leanings, tribal patterns printed on raw silk feel primed for Haight-Ashbury in the 60s, yet destined to outfit todays haute bohme on the polo fields of Palm Springs. Such free-spirited patterns and stitch details are ideal for nail tips, as guest artist Ran Kowatari proves with her intricately hand painted takes on the trend. Keep your artwork one-dimensional using Gouache paint (Kowataris preferred medium for detail work) or build subtle depth by creating your pattern with a thick application of acrylic powder mixed with UV gel.
