We all know the tribal trend has crept into the fashion-sphere many times before, but this time it is more unique than ever.
The fantasy drama Game of Thrones is becoming increasingly popular with its gripping story lines. It would appear that its costumes and distinctive tribal styling has even influenced the fashion industry. Not only on the catwalks, but on the high street.
It seems that Valentino has created his Spring/Summer ready-to-wear collection with this imaginary tribal trend in mind. Filled with intricate detail and stitching, mixes of dark colours and summery pastels Valentine manages to create his own version of tribal.
Alexander McQueen have also put their spin on the iconic tribal look, with their Spring/Summer collection. Unlike Valentino however, Alexander McQueen have decided to add a little Egyptian detailing. For all McQueen has differed from Valentino’s version of tribal it still is a look that could be brought to the high street.
High end designer Givenchy also brought tribal wear to their catwalk. Their collection features graphic printed coats and capes but with bold colours and prints proving that tribal is versatile and can be done in many different ways this then proving that the tribal trend can always be adapted and changed.
Celebrities are also trying out this summer ready trend. Rihanna in particular has become seduced by all things tribal, as well as Beyoncé who was spotted wearing a tribal print jumpsuit, matched with a pair of gold flats leaving Bergdorf Goodman in NYC.
2014’s spin on tribal is different to collections we’ve seen from previous years – it’s strayed away from the strong graphic prints and the bold colours that we have seen before and instead is a calmer take on the trend. By using pastel colours, lace and flowing fabrics makes this version of tribal easier to wear. .
With Game Of Thrones becoming increasingly popular it is only right that the tribal trend will be here to stay, and with Givenchy’s latest collection for Autumn/Winter it seems tribal will be seeing us through the Winter months.
