Summer's new trend is one part Earth Mother, three parts chic.
Ladies of the East End, we’re getting a little earthy. Blame the influence of music festivals, like Coachella and The Governors Ball, for reviving the hippie days of yore, but even the top echelon of high-end designers—we’re talking Missoni and Michael Kors—is infusing its luxury wares with the slightest touch of free-spirited fashion. Take this 2.55 Chanel bag: an iconic shape in the color of the season, slate blue, and covered in crochet embroidery. Or this chain-strap M Missoni bag, a classic ladies-wholunch style, but constructed out of chunky, nubby knit. The look is sweet, with embellished details and just a hint of ruggedness that takes it from saccharine to subdued. It’s as if the casual feel of Ditch Plains and the elegance of Meadow Lane had merged.
