Trend Watch: Navajo

Being a proud Oklahoma citizen you can only imagine the excitement that filled my heart when the Native American influence made a mark in fashion history. Even though the Navajo fad will make it's departure as quick as it's appearance, there's still something quite nostalgic to know my heritage had a minute of fame. The fabrics and patterns of Navajo is a drastic change from the 40's silhouettes of F/W '09.

Overall, this trend is highly welcomed and executed extremely well by Pendleton/Opening Ceremony. Pendleton is a brand with a rich history of producing Native American fabrics and textiles since the 1800s. Opening Ceremony has teamed up with Pendleton to collaborate a trendy meets outdoorsy line. The outcome of the line is an ingenius artistic approach to our nation's richest and earliest settlers.
