Folk­lore Fi­esta

Apparel Online - - TEX-FILE -

The folk fash­ion was ev­i­dent in al­most all the run­ways as sev­eral sig­na­tory folk mo­tifs found a place in the de­signs for Spring 2019. Orig­i­nat­ing from Per­sian art­works, the pais­ley pat­tern is as­so­ci­ated with ex­otic for­eign lands that add a tinge of eth­nic fash­ion to the other­wise ur­ban tai­lored sil­hou­ettes, and thus these emerged as one of the most used eth­nic mo­tifs this sea­son. Etro’s surfer swim­suit and jacket and Is­abel Marant’s travel-in­spired col­lec­tion made the best case for the abun­dant use of pais­leys this sea­son.

These eth­nic prints had a strong ori­en­tal in­spi­ra­tion as de­tailed coin pat­terns, in­tri­cate rug de­signs, fine eth­nic flo­ral prints in gold and foil tech­niques were the com­mon sights for this trend. The mo­tif was best used by Roberto Cavalli’s as coins of vary­ing sizes and colours were used to de­sign the en­tire en­sem­ble of co­or­di­nat­ing sep­a­rates.
