Snapshots of Kate's weekend at Coachella.
The summer music festival season kicked off at Coachella this weekend, and with it, the summer style scene. Shopbop Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch was there, and she brought back a few photos and some new favorites.
Favorite Show: Tough! I can’t choose one! Cut Copy was insane, and the Strokes were amazing. Mumford & Sons were a fave! A music industry friend took me to their show in Williamsburg a little over a year ago, and it’s just so cool to see how successful they have become. Lauryn Hill, Nas, and Damian Marley were so nostalgic for me. I love a hip hop show. And last, City of Colour from Canada—I’m obsessed with his voice.
Best New Discovery: Cage the Elephant—I love their sounds. I also saw the Foals for the second time. They rocked it for sure.
Coolest Fashion Trends: Feathers, face paint, headdresses were everywhere. No doubt a hybrid trend adopted from MGMT and Karen O. The most ubiquitous look was the crochet top and denim cutoffs, but I saw one dress I died over: a scarf dress with a really low back and an amazing print.
Item You Were Most Glad You Packed: You can never have enough bikinis. It is HOT!
