e all walk to the beat of our own drum, so why not do it with a little Southwest swagger? At Isabel Marant, all pieces receive the dream-catching treatment, from geometric-patterned jeans to fringed sweaters to suede boots. Orange, gold and black Navajo-inspired prints are updated as oversized and pixilated at Proenza Schouler and neatly gathered with Southwest chic at L.A.M.B. Even Santa Fe’s ﬁnest accoutrement, the feather, crops up in banded beauty at Matthew Williamson and is alluded to as a ﬁery zigzag of wooly knit at Etro. How will you make your nail art Southwestern-bound? Might we suggest ﬂocking ﬁngernails with feathers? Or hand-paint Navajo prints and spike them with sparkle for a touch of high plains glam.
