On the runways designers reinvented the rich style of the Native Americans--the result effortlessly decadent. Anna Sui’s girls were nomad personified in hippie casual crochet separates, denim and ethnic jewellery. Ever ethnic Etro gave the look a more graphic, tribal twist; with intense prints and colours on floppy silhouettes.
I love the irony of the line "when done correctly this is the ultimate youthful and eclectic summer look"--put in boldface in the original. Nothing about these fashions strikes me as "done correctly."
The writer basically tells us what we're seeing: "nomad personified in hippie casual crochet separates, denim and ethnic jewellery." In other words, generic hippie apparel mislabeled as generic Indian fashion. The exact opposite of fashion specifically based on Cherokee elements.
These fashions ignore the differences between hundreds of Native cultures. They ignore Native cultures altogether in favor of tired, clicheéd Native stereotypes. In short, this look is done incorrectly, not correctly. Oops.
