Trend Alert: The Ikat Print Invades 2008
January 30, 2008
It’s a wonder your biggest designers haven’t lined the runway with it because this fabric is the new year’s big hit. One might even say it’s the Ikat’s pajamas. The Fall 2007 collections of the likes of Balenciaga and Armani were awash with this resist-dying technique which has trickled down into the ethnic-inspired looks of Zara, Topshop, and Etsy.
My personal faves come in the form of lingerie – like Topshop's Ikat mesh bra and panty get-up (bra $24, panty $8). Ain't no Ik about it, ladies.
