The tribal trend has never been hotter than right now. Countless
designers infused Spring/Summer 2010 clothes and accessories with
African-inspired patterns and materials for a look we love.
Interior designers are in on the act as well, adding touches of
exotic modernism to rooms in the form of African stools and masks,
animal prints and more. These Tapeet sandals combine two trends in
one—tribal influence and the ankle cuff. We think they’re the summer’s
go-to shoe for safari khaki or much wilder prints. We love all of Many Will See’s one-of-a-kind necklaces. But
this one, Horned In, studded with fabulous boar’s teeth, might be our
favorite—and the perfect accessory for t-shirts or chiffon.
This African tribal stool from is carved from a single block of wood. We
are also partial to and needlepoint pillows and the by designers Kate
McIntyre and Brad Huntzinger. More Shoes from Valentino,Jimmy Choo
Giuseppe Zanotti, and Elizabeth & James on the video. Enjoy-Shoes
