A Find: Something to Chirp About
April 30, 2007
Why: Maybe itâ€™s the chirping birds outside my window, or maybe itâ€™s the fresh, blossom-inspired Spring colors that are cropping up again at long last, but Iâ€™ve been feeling extra-inspired by all things Chinoiserie lately. A European design that borrows its whimsical imagery and creative uses of scale from Chinese tradition, Chinoiserie often features patterns of birds and blossoms on bright, sherbet-colored backgrounds. This golden Juicy Couture necklace is a great modern take on the look, adding a little bit of kitsch (like the solitary cubic zirconia and chain of hears floating off-center) to a rich, Renaissance look. Since summer is the best time to test-drive all things bold, thereâ€™s no better time to get in on the revival the Chinoiserie trend is enjoying. At the very least, the smooching swallows and vivacious gold will brighten your day and your outfit.
