It has been said that, thanks to the influx of Rosalía, everything that is typically Spanish is in fashion and serves as inspiration for designers all around the world. Perhaps. Why not? Although I personally believe that the folklore chic which defines us has an air of mysterious charm that intermittently sparks attraction.
Polka dots, frills, pleats, fringes, long earrings… For seasons the flamenco details have been taking over with aplomb our classic items of clothing, although the trend, which is smart and decadent, is showing us how to wear them so as not to succumb to total boredom.
Let’s focus on polka dots. This summer they are varying in size, position and how to wear them. Designers are presenting them to us by including different sized ones on the same item of clothing, in XL format, medium-sized ones, and joined up together creating a ‘trompe l’œill’ effect, mini and total look ones and multicoloured ones.
My choice: The spotted skirt by the Italian brand Pinko that includes small frills emphasising its flamenco style to fill the summer season up with art.
If anything has made sense to me, it’s that polka dots are no longer limited to decorating the pin-up dresses of the 50s. An absolute ode to polka dots! Olé!
