Orient Express

orient inspired editorialsorient on the runway orient shoppingIf I were to make a public opinion poll (among fashion public of course) about the biggest trend that is taking hold of our wardrobes and magazine pages; the answer would be obvious: modern minimalism. (Gotch’ya.) But if I were to ask the most powerful influence on fabrics, cuts and prints; the answer is inarguably the oriental inspiration.Whether you associate it with satin, dragons, assymetrical skirts, getas, floral embroideries, kimonos, sumo belts or chopsticks – it has probably already had you under its spell.

While – I have to admit yet again – Zara has everything you can search for; I recommend you to hit etsy or local vintage shops for genuine kimonos. If you are ready to splurge; Haider Ackermann and Damir Doma are, in my opinion, the leaders of the trend this season. There are also the Prada shoes, but… you know, I can not ask anyone to grab a pair and wear them to..well..anywhere. Kudos to people who can pull THAT off, meanwhile, let’s see my little shopping guide for asian inspired fashion (and some street style photos from the pros to guide through the way.)
