Globe Trotter

Balenciaga had one of the most popular runway collections this autumn, and subsequently inspired the uber-edgy trend - Boho - tec. Yet some how, Boho - tec has been left behind amid the 1940's, shades of berry and luxe leather, begging the question - Have we shunned Boho - tec?

The august edition of British Vogue featured a fascinating editorial entitled To the Ends of the Earth. The shoot captured in Papua new Guinea, displayed an eccentric concoction of colourful tribal clothes and western extravagances, creating the same global mix seen on Balenciaga's a/w runway. Boho - tec is all about contrast, mixture and clashing. Balenciaga have created a truly unique collection that entertains a wide spectrum of different influences - campus chic, country club, old European military, desert trek, Russian winter furs, African prints, Oriental silks and hippy tie- dye patterns. The look celebrates the travelling bohemian; multi culture in fashion.

Balenciaga a/w does multi - cultural chic

Boho - tec may be Bohemian or 'Boho' but it is a far cry from 'Boho's' last outing of the white tiered Gypsy skirts and fur gilets of Sienna Miller circa 2005. To achieve Boho's newest incarnation study the runway of Balenciaga. The key pieces of Balenciaga's Boho - tec include -

  • The Blazer, seen in every colour from cream to pink and purple pinstripe, aswell as tweed
  • Beige Jodhpurs - the latest trouser shape
  • Polo necks especially blazoned with horizontal stripes
  • Tights in colours of muted grey and brilliant azure blue
  • Palestinian scarfs
  • Winter coats bound with a chunky belt
  • Military Jackets
  • Silk patterned scarf dresses
  • A- symmetrical frilled printed skirts
  • Chunky, uber - modern shoe or sandal
  • Primary and bright colours
Want Boho - tec to come to your wardrobe? Simple. Mix and match is the key. Bought a patterned, satin dress in spring? Wear this over a striped tee and grey tights with a chunky wedge. Or perhaps, wear a polo neck jumper with a blazer, scarf and high sandals with grey stockings. Make sure to clash patterns and prints, colours and texture, and hey presto, you're a globe trotter.

The Dress -
The Top -

The Trouser and Skirt

The Coat - Accessorise -

Boho - tec - not for the faint hearted.
