KNOW YOUR PRINTS! # 2- Chinoiserie By: The Billion Brand

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 It is a print originally made big in china but has surfaced in the states and gone big also.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.

PRONOUNCED: chi·noi·se·rie

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!
