NOW SOLD, THANKS
It’s a colour riot and it totally works!
This pattern alternates bands of smaller-scale plaid patterns in lime, chartreuse, chalk and accents of pink and burgundy (43cm repeat) with longer bold strokes of fuschia, periwinkle and oyster based plaids (48cm).
It really is pleasing how all these colours and patterns harmonise with each. With this type of pattern, you just don’t really worry too much about being very matchy with the patterns. I think you can just cut in to this and the pattern will take care of itself. I find this is often the best approach with seemingly busy or dense patterns.
Garments here from Oscar de la Renta and Chloe, amongst unknown others. The top on the far right is by Oscar de la Renta. This is a great example of how to mix a whole lot of plaids together.
You could also temper the colours by mixing in one or two plain contrast colours, which would also make the fabric go further of course.
This silk is a crepe de chine, lightweight but dense and it has tons of body, so it would be fantastic with gathers or other volume, long tie-necks and so on.
The fabric measure 117cm x 2 metres. The price is $24 a metre/$48 for the piece.
I can post this in the smallest satchel (with tracking) at $8.25. Please see here for full details on payment and posting. If interested, please click on the email below; fabric details will appear automatically and I will get back to you asap. (Australia delivery only thanks).
