A Convoluted Trend Report

This is going to be interesting. Welcome to a brief tour of my brain. Behind you is the visual cortex, where there is just a bundle of information swimming around. Don't be confused by the plethora of images which include beads, pelts, leather and tassels, all against a soft white backdrop. You may run into a girl here, her long tresses tied into loose braids and adorned with feathers. Don't bother her, though, she's crocheting herself a sweater.

When I think of summer, this is what I see. Flower girl meets Last of the Mohicans. In a white dress. And this is my trend report. All runway looks are from Rosemount Australian Fashion Week.

For me, Jordan Bettan's Lost Art accessories reinvigorate the craft of leatherwork in a way I have never seen. Is the belt, with all its pelt and bone, excessive for anyone other than Pocahontas? Maybe. But strap that over a white sundress and wear it with gladiator sandals and maybe your boyfriend's worn-in army shirt (think Alexa Chung at Coachella) and I will fall in love with you.

Obviously, I'm still ardently advocating white as choice for summer. I will keep telling you about it until I've exhausted myself. White lace, white crochet, off-white, embroidered white, long flowy white dresses, white ruffles, sheer white and white paired with leather and tassels and all aforementioned accessories.
