Art’s sake: eccentric fashion abounds at Venice Biennale
Mix up your minimalist mantra with S/S 2019’s souped-up eccentric silhouettes. Add oomph to your personal style with embellishments and accoutrements. Think tulle, brocade, surrealist jewellery and a bounty of print. Pavilions, grand Palazzos and open air exhibitions at the 58th Venice Biennale abound with creativity and flair. So it’s natural we chose the labyrinthine streets and infinite canals of the city to show off summer’s eccentric mood. Time to gear up and get avant-garde.
