Pucci goes Native

Milan Fashion Week:  Pucci hits the Navajo trailThe British designer Matthew Williamson took the Navajo path in his collection for Pucci at Milan Fashion Week.

The collection blazed a trail of brilliant colour, mixing pinks, reds and oranges and dazzling hues of turquoise with black, white and tan.

The prints, inspired by traditional native American blankets and jewellery, juxtaposed zig-zag patterns and arrow-heads with sun and moon motifs, on silk kimono-jackets, slinky silk jersey dresses, loose-fitting trousers, A-line short skirts and shorts.
Comment:  It's not obvious from this picture what the article is talking about. The bathing suit doesn't look a bit Navajo to me. If anything, it resembles the bright designs seen in Central and South America.

Oh, are some designs that look Navajo:

I guess the editor made a poor choice when deciding which picture should illustrate the article.
