Oriental (Express) Inspiration.

Designers are turning to the Far East for inspiration, as oriental prints and lavish fabrics take precedence on the catwalk. From traditional chinoiserie motifs to opulent kimono detailing, these prints add a touch of elegance and luxury. Featuring repeated patterns of delicate blossoms and elaborate embellishments in beautiful watercolor washes. I show you how to incorporate the oriental trend into your summer wardrobe.

Chic and sophisticated summer dresses become ornate with asian-inspired prints. Interlaced green , yellow and purple florals gives a polished yet playful look to a soft A line dress while a more modernized take on oriental design is imagined with black flowered kimono inspire dress. For simple lines, a wrap dress featuring hues of red and pink and for a classic look butterflies flies throughout a blossom dress. 

From scenic chinoiserie graphics to delicate watercolor prints, asian infused tops are delightful for summertime.

Trousers, jumpsuits and jeans are all hopping on the oriental express. Black pants are adorned with dainty blossoms for a pleasant contrast. In other hand a colourful pants with a burst of vibrant florals. 

The oriental trend could give you a very chic look if you know how to use it. When wearing big patterns and colourful pieces it might be a good idea to turn down the volume of your accessories. And please don't take this trend to the very end and don't over do it, you don't want to look like a japanese cartoon!
