From the Hawaiian shirt tothrough the floral print, the basics of summer multiply without great ambition mode. The style is simple, no frills or the extravagance that we used to see at such events.
As for those who wanted to opt for the look in good standing, few manage to sharpen the excitement of a fashionista as the recipes seem exhausted. From crochet top tomakeup, the menu looks the same as in previous years.
It is an air of "déjà vu" which blows on the outfits of the festival-goers, which makes wonder if the festival dress has not become a fixed package used up to the marrow, and no longer an opportunity to to dare unrestrained trends.
