You know the tulle skirt wearing Annie Lennox on stage with David Bowie during the concert in tribute to Freddie Mercury? It was 1992, she showed up with a spectacular black tulle and a silver shirt and at the end, on the Under Pressure notes, she bowed with this skirt that seemed to float her like the petals of a flower.
Elegant, scenic, irreverent the tulle skirt even then did its figure … Because fashion is known, does not invent almost nothing but resumes, inspired and often repeats leaders who have made history in the past.
This is the case of tulle, friend of the woman since the 50’s, a time when femininity had maximum expression both in the clothes that the accessories. Inspired by the classic tutu Degas model, the tulle skirt made cyclically peep into the world of fashion, each time with the idea of being a novelty. And here again this year especially strong combinations: with leather jacket as wearing Chiara Ferragni, with denim shirt as proposed by Dsquared, with high heels or gladiator sandals.
