Classic prints

I continue to acquaint you with the history of the classic prints and, of course, show how they can and should be worn (for example, stellar dandies and ladies). Actually, I came to this idea that the prints - a wonderful thing. Let your ensemble is designed in minimalist style, perhaps even in monochrome, but even a small Printed accessory or element capable of adding to it the most notorious flavor, and the whole image will play in a new way.

But to obtain the status of "classic" this print was only in the postwar 50s of the last century - thanks to Christian Dior and Yves Laurent Seine.

A curious story of the so-called "red shirts Peas," which became a symbol of leadership in cycling, "Tour de France". To identify the leader of the race, it wore a T-shirt in red peas.

Indian cucumber

The history of the prints dates back several centuries, probably why he has so many titles - Indian cucumber, Turkish bean, oriental cucumber, paisley. Ornament first appeared in India, and initially was considered a symbol of fertility and decorated clothing and regalia of nobility.

In Europe and Russia, he became known for cashmere fabrics with "cucumber" print. Popularity ornament experienced a lot of ups and downs - in a moment he became very fashionable and John Lennon bought a yellow Rolls Royce decorated with "Indian cucumber", in another moment, they forget all about him.

Animal prints have always been associated with wealth and high social status. Throughout the long history of kings and nobles wore animal skins as a symbol of status and power.

His popularity won the animal print in the late '60s in the US, the flowering of the hippie era.

Fortunately, today we do not need to destroy the animals, to demonstrate its importance, and we will gladly wear patterns under the tiger, leopard, zebra and giraffe in ordinary life. Unchanged remains only one thing - if properly handled animalic prints really look very expensive.
