The Gist: The bohemian jet-setter has inspired runway shows all over NYC this week (with actress and style icon Talitha Getty being a primary source), and Milly’s spring collection pays tribute as well. Featuring: Psychedelic-inspired, large-scale prints in caftans and maxi dresses, crochet knits, and belted shift-dresses predominately make up the collection. Working with bright hues like chartreuse, lavender, brown, turquoise, and pink, designer Michelle Smith incorporates small ruffles, pompom trim, lace, and even Morroccan-inspired beading into the clothing. Accessories like fringed scarves, dangling pendant necklaces, crochet bags and hats, and rope belts play up the boho vibe. The “It” Factor For Denver:
If you’re planning on sporting this look for spring, go for broke with either one of Milly’s billowy caftans or, more city friendly, a beaded and belted print dress. Look For It Next Spring At: Chelsea, 935 Pearl Street, Boulder, 303-447-3760; and Garbarini, 3003 East Third Avenue, 303-333-8686.
