Vagabond mixed with a dose of sexy. Layers upon layers of seemingly mismatched items paired with ease, formulating the perfect ensemble of madness. Just enough right on the cusp of too much makes the look what it is. From the runway to the street, men and women alike have embraced the look. Hats, scarves, cardigans, boots, those who attempt it can’t be bashful, but strategy is key.
Some pull it off effortlessly, others not so much. It may look haphazard, disheveled, or any other word you want to substitute for messy, but the foundation of the look is built on structure. Even with all the component, the final product is a perfectly harmonious combination of mystery.
This last shot goes back a couple of season, but it truly speaks to vagabond style. Missoni has been showing us how it’s done for a while now.
