Under a nomadic theme, the African safari-inspired collection mixes up tribal looks with today's modern, more abstract aesthetic. The runway models strap on thigh-high gladiator sandals that require a lot of lacing up or buckling down. American designer Michael Kors makes it all too easy to get swooped up in his exotic fashion of animal prints, python leather and muted colors. He certainly makes these glam gladiator sandals a must-have shoe for the upcoming season.
Dress up in these sophisticated safari pieces from the Michael Kors Spring 2012 collection and feel like a chic globetrotter without having to physically get away.
Implications - Exotic looks from faraway places offer a different and unique fashion look for consumers who want to stand out. While the global economy is still down, people find themselves taking less vacation and trips. A cultured theme from a different country lets consumers feel like they're "getting away" without having to actually ever leave the home.
