This post was supposed to go up yesterday but thanks to lot of things not working out, here it is now.
After the long Easter weekend, I believe your system has been restored now and you are back to work-mode.
Today I bring you another colourful piece featuring one of my fave colours – mustard. I love mustard and I intend to get a couple of stuff in this hue mainly shoes and bags.
As you may have noticed, of late I’ve been schooling you guys abit on the origin/history of different fashion trends so that next time you think of buying or wearing it, you actually understand the story behind it.
Today is no different.
We are going to talk about prints.
I’ve been obsessed with following fashion history and just understanding what inspired certain trends and what the trend was responding to in society. This is because fashion is a mirror of the society.
Prints came into the limelight in the 1940s.
Laces, trims, pipings and other materials were all being manufactured in Europe. During this time, Europe was still at war, it was under attack and as such these items could not be accessed. This is where bold prints came in, replacing the fancy trims.
I’m sure all of you have at least one print item in your closet. This is one of those must have stuff because they never go out of fashion. Just find interesting ways to recreate your looks.
With that said, let’s dig into the photos.
Oh, and I have a new clean theme, tell me what you think about it, scroll all the way to the bottom to see more info.
