Model Street Style

"A Fashion that does not reach the Streets, is not Fashion" - Coco Chanel

Trend Watch: Looking towards the Orient

It’s about time the Western world embraced all there is to Asian fashion. After all, the Chinese were the ones to invent silk and traded it on the eponymous Silk Road to India and the rest of the world. Besides the material, Asian prints are also luscious, vibrant and distinctive. 

Seen on the runways in the Etro, Pucci and Peter Pilotto Spring/Summer shows, this trend is taking the street fashion world by storm. The best way to wear the trend, in my opinion, is to embrace all of it: the material, the prints as well as the style. So go ahead, wear a printed silk coat/dress kimono-style as these ladies have. You will definitely set the mark as a true trend-setter. 

As an Asian, I wholeheartedly APPROVE.
