When you mix celebs, music, fashion and put it all in a remote desert location, what you get is Coachella 2016; an incredible mix of off-the-charts awesomeness.
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is a multi-faceted mix of entertainment with music being the main draw but fashion is quickly becoming the side show that is getting all the attention. The festival brings about 180,0000 people each year to Indio and Palm Springs, California and takes place April 15 – 17 and April 22-24 so buckle up, with back-to-back weekends, this sh-t gonna get real real.
Like the movie themes of “Weekend at Bernie’s” combined with “Risky Business” and touch of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, Coachella is a millennial’s excuse to let it all hang out and then memorialize it on Instagram. When this type of epic low down is happening, rest assured people are dropping a few dimes and dressing for the occasion. You ask, “What is the dress code for dance club in the desert?” – well we’re here to break it down, bust it out, and help get your swag on.
In the fabulous lives of the young, rich, and famous what you wear is like a mating call of clothes. Lots of skin covered with tats, cut outs, cut offs, and crop tops are the go-to favorite to show the body art. There’s no shortage of denim and lace and designers like Nanette Lapore bring signature girlish charm. Accessories are all part of the hippie vibe. Fringe cross body bags, floppy hats, and flower headbands all add to the mood. The glam squad in attendance includes Gigi Hadid, the Jenner clan, Biebs, and Chris Brown and they’re always DTI. Last year Hadid wore a chestnut colored suede vest. This look was so loved, the style made its way into retail stores around the globe as a key piece. Flat caps and screen tees are a DJ’s favorite uniform.
Pop-up shops and interactive virtual reality experiences from H&M are the new, modern way to tantalize their audience in real time. The most recent designer to buy into the buzz is Calvin Klein. In an effort join the “in” crowd, Klein and their multiple subsidiaries will host a “brand experience” over the weekend. Well, hell ya, “brand me“!-whatever that means.
Temperatures rise as body heat combines with hot-as-hell desert conditions; pool parties happening at hotels and private residences are so off-the-hook that even Robin Leach would drop his dentures in ecstasy. The festival has a modern-day Woodstock vibe (if you’re old enough to make that connection) but with parties set in über elite retreats.
Coachella attracts an orgasmic line up of talent and entertainment that is so huge the event may self-combust with young, hottie fever. Get your posse locked and loaded-this event isn’t for amateurs.
