Yukata Fabrics and the Wizard of Oz
Mixing Traditional Patterns with Contemporary Shapes
Last weekend, we headed to Chelsea market and the Pier with photographer Gillian Cohen and model friends Janelle Fletcher and Alexis Fyall to shoot some of our favorite summer looks. The material for the lace-up dresses, inspired by traditional Asian patterns, were sported on a more modern silhouette, a bodycon dress with trendy lace-up details.
Right now, we’re loving the contrast between conventional textiles and contemporary shapes. The lace-up style can be worn in the front, or on the sides, so it’s friendly for both full and small chested girls.
The gingham two-piece outfit also puts a spin on the traditional Wizard of Oz style fabric. This trend is all about paying homage to classic patterns, while keeping things fresh and modern.
