This season, prints cross swords in a clash that brings instant high drama to your wardrobe. Opt for one pattern from head to toe with a touch of fabulous Italian flair from Roberto Cavalli & Salvatore Ferragamo who both played with bright, tropical motifs this Spring/Summer. Don’t be scared to mix and match: Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli all chose to use statement prints on versatile pieces that can be worn together or as separates to give a simple look a vibrant touch. Team a bright graphic with contrasting accessories and woven details for a stylish finish that is bursting with energy and a unique flash.
Adding an air of danger and a hint of drama to the scene are swords and helmuts from the Confraternita della Spada, an association based in Florence that aims to revive the traditions of historic Renaissance weaponry.
