Good Question: Asian Prints In For Fall?

Good Question: Asian prints and fabrics were hot over the summer. Is the Asian-inspired look still in for fall?

Answer: In a word, yes! Ethnic influences are still going strong. But I’ve noticed a gradual return to opulence in the last year or so, from the down side of shabby chic to the burgeoning boho luxe. I expect autumn 2005 will now cap off the sophisticated trend, and refined asian prints and themes will fit right in. The House of Ungaro unveiled its elegant take on this in its Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 line: kimono sleeves. For a slightly more traditional look, kimono-style robes are just the thing, like this one sold at Canton Bazaar, a pan-Asian shop I spotted in San Francisco’s Chinatown while on vacation. Overall, you’ll find a little bit of the Orient in everything from dresses and career wear to unmentionables and home furnishings, too. Cartier’s Le Baiser Du Dragon (Dragon Kiss) has a distinctly woody-vetiver scent with warm and unexpected notes of amber and amaretto. And, the beautiful bottle it comes in, a “fusion of Chinese Art and Art Deco,” is a mini architectural statement all on its own. Find asian-inspired styles at cantonbazaar.com or angelbodywear.com.
