Trompe l'What? The Hot New Trend Not Just For French Speakers

August 7, 2009 by SheFindsNicole
shefinds | Style

It’s official – the couture houses are obsessed with trompe l’oeil. French for “trick of the eye,” this art world technique uses prints to create fabrics that are not always what they appear. So far this look hasn’t been seen much outside of the runway, but we managed to track down some very wearable alternatives to the designer duds.

1. Mary Katrantzou’s perfume bottle inspired dress ($1,115) accentuates -or creates – the sexy curves of the (probably rich and thin) wearer. Accentuate your own curves for less with a Mara Hoffman frock ($297) and look a little like a chandelier while you’re at it.

2. Sure, Inside Out’s zipper print jean ($310) has the grungy cool look down pat, but Free People’s Lace Stencil Skinny Jeans ($98) offer a slightly girlier take on the trend.

3. So far, none of the ready-to-wear brands are making anything similar to Comme des Garçons’ blue illusion jacket ($1,240).  We know that Forever 21 is always the first to produce carbon copies inspired imitations of high fashion, so for now we’ll have to do with their trompe l’oeil inspired zipper tee ($12.80).
