Bohemian has many different definitions but the general meaning is a movement of artist and poets in late 19th century France, especially in Paris. Bohemians believed in living outside of the bourgeois (conventional, middle class) mainstream culture. Bohemians were against the Salon (the institution that controlled the literary and art market in France until the turn of the 20th century)and believed that art and literature should be radical.

Bohemian style is about doing things your way, away from convention and its all about self expression and creative energy. Creating your own style using recycled or finding things on a shoe string means also creating magic from the mundane.

Maya wears Just Cavalli!

fashion

Just Cavalli is known for prints but the secret is the pant. The Just Cavalli pant is one of the best cuts you can come across. The silhouette is so perfectly cut it gives you the best outcome you could hope for with a fantastic looking behind and leg!

The Just Cavalli label has turned a corner and it is certainly turning heads. After changing licencee it has done a full circle and is back to offering the supreme sexy, rock n roll boho look. More exciting is that it is no longer in the same price bracket, prices are a lot better and you can think of adding some luxury pieces to your wardrobe at half the price.

Maya is wearing the W12/13 pant which will drop into store in November. The stretch denim makes for comfort and perfect lines while the print and cut compliment each other when worn with a mono colour.

Above is a little showcase of the Summer resort 2013 collection which will be in store in May next year. Inspired by a trip to India, Roberto Cavalli has concentrated on exotic animal prints and safari and then mixed it in with a psychedelically hip hop theme.

Red capri pant available from the Just Cavalli Summer 12 collection at Net A Porter; http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/185676

These gorgeous metallic skinny jeans look amazing with anything. They are available now at Frockaholics; http://www.frockaholics.com/Shop/file/ProductV2/cat/15/pid/7936/mcat/0/Metallic-Painted-Skinny-Jean.htm

ChicFinds shopping inspiration

fashion

This season it’s all about the print. Print’s bright, bold and brilliant! Maybe it’s a sign of the hard times that have hit that make us want to forget the grey, black and white of the situation and instead see geometric, floral, tribal and revel in the pure fantasy. It might seem a little confrontational after all that minimalism but lets face it! It’s fun!

The confrontational thing about prints is we often get into a bind about how to wear them. Well this season you cant go wrong if you find it in the shirt and in the pant. The two stongest categories in fashion this season. Mix either with a mono colour and simple lines and your on to a winner.

Included in this season’s explosion of print is that of the snake, python, lizard, zebra and all the other wild beasts you can imagine. And it’s not being limited to belts, shoes and accessories but it’s all over our leggins, dresses, coats and you cant deny it, its a classic print that is undenyably chic! It’s wonderful to see some of our old favorites coming back, Roberto Cavalli, Missoni, Pucci, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana……let’s support those crazy creative Italians (they need it) but who is king or should we say Queen? …. she is unbeatable in her genius interpretations…..no other than Prada! Chicfinds loves Prada for its strength in creating a world each season which is not dependent on a logo. It has to be said that yes, we love Louis Vuitton but on our travels lately it has become tiresome seeing it on the arm of all as really it has become yet another status symbol. Chic is not a status symbol it’s much more courageous than that.

Chicfinds suggests you find your self some print and here is a fantastic guide for shopping http://www.vogue.it/shopping/dove-comprare and http://www.archfashion.com.au/Region/Australia Enjoy!
