Jamii: Bringing back “The Triibe”
It goes without saying that tribal fashions, be them cogniscent of the ebony colored villages of rural Africa or the beiges and bronzes of India, have made a fierce arrival onto the fashion horizon. Head-wraps and Levis, Turbans and Crop Tops, V-necks and Sandals— YOU NAME IT! One by one, fashion divas and divos alike are jumping on to ride this bold wave of fashion. Sure to stand-out amongst the crowd, anyone who can pull off this look is sure to turn heads!
What makes the tribal look so fetch is it’s ambiguity. There is no gender barrier with this new flight of fashion. There is no limit to accessorizing. There are no rules: If it is normally considered a fashion “don’t”, then it may very well be Spot-On. It is a bold look, in that it is very bare. Minimalism may very well say just as much as an over-the-top concept when it comes to all looks Le Tribe.
The look is a refreshing representation of what fashion should truly exude: SELF-EXPRESSION. An over-sized top may mean that you feel loose, or a little slopped mentally that day, whereas a head-wrap may be worn to portray elitism or having one’s head together, depending upon how it is tied or tucked. A distressed jean may be included in the formula to compliment the rigidness of the look, but for the expert fashionistas, a fetch pair of harem pants will do some justice! Footwear is most times a hybrid of vintage boots and sandals (see Beads, Browns, and Bronzes), and color schemes may range from monotones for the washed out days to neon colors depending on one’s Latitude of Style!
The days of urban wear and high priced conceptualism are slowly reaching extinction. The Fly Society has decided to reach back into its roots: the beginnings. The Fashion Statement is back. What does YOUR tribehave to say?
