Fashion Plate: China Patterns on the Runway
The classic blue and white patterns from your grandmother's China get an update for the runway.
From Roberto Cavalli's 2013 resort collection.
As I was skimming through the different runway shows—a pretty usual habit of mine, I noticed a very interesting trend. From the runways of Naeem Khan, Tory Burch and a few others—ornamental detailed blue and white. Crisp and beautiful. Full of embroidery and detail. Then I remembered back to a few years ago that Roberto Cavalli did the same thing on his runway. Not to cheapen your experience with this trend but the entire thing reminded me of my grandmother’s china collection. So maybe there is something to truly be said of being called a “fashion plate.”
