We are back at it again helping you to understand the proper name of a print you may see or wear!
The next print up is called “Chinoiserie”. Now I know this is probably a commonly foreign word to most of mens vocabulary, but probably not so foreign to their eye! It is a print originally made big in china but has surfaced in the states and gone big also.
What exactly is “Chinoiserie”? you ask.
It is a pattern that is influenced by Eastern elements such as dragons, animals and flowers.
Officially defined as: the imitation or evocation of Chinese motifs and techniques in Western art, furniture, and architecture, especially in the 18th century.
Dolce & Gabbna has recently released a collection geared toward this amazing print which match a great fit with a great sight. The fabric is inviting and yet has a sense of calmness!
