A Quest Called Tribal: African, Native American and Boho Inspired Finds

Fashion aficionados have been drooling over the "tribal chic" looks that strutted down the runways at the Dior, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Azzedine Alaia Spring/Summer 2009 shows. The Dior collection, for one, was heavily influenced by Galliano's
travels through Africa: one of the show's biggest showstoppers was a pair of animal print platform sandals with metallic straps and a heel carved to resemble an African fertility goddess.

Now, after months of waiting to buy these goodies (and the more affordable versions fashioned by mass retailers), we can finally become style globetrotters. From patchwork designs to elaborate beadwork, shell details, animal prints, feather embellishments, braided leather motifs, and fringed trim, this spring's styles are a little Celopatra, a bit Josephine Baker, a smidgen Last of the Mohicans, a dash of Erykah Badu, and a pinch of Frida Kahlo with some Iman, Kay Amin and India.Arie added in (among many, many others).

Check out some of the most exciting offerings, which span acros a broad price range — so there's something for every global marauder.
