Marni-Chinoiserie in Fashion

It is rare when my love for fashion and Chinoiserie intersect. So this Fall 2009 RTW collection by Marni could not be more up my alley. Prints and color are a big look this fall, and I adore these Chinoiserie silk wallpaper prints Marni sent down the runway. Don't they have a de Gournay feel to them? One of these gorgeous Chinoiserie silks would definitely lift your look and your spirits.

I love the yellow wallpaper with the pink flower and butterfly!

Theresa-LOL-I was thinking the same thing. An example of "you look like you are wearing wallpaper" being a compliment!

Oh my! Oh my! Very hip. I have a collection of silk embroidered pyjamas (some from the 70s)that I like to rock with just about anything. I usually don't wear the bottoms, but I just love the vibrant colors and mandarin collars. Another fab post!

Kitty-Oh, I love the idea of vintage Chinese silk. I hope you wear some sort of bottoms though-LOL!

Little Augury-Love fashion/interior design connections, but they are rare with Chinoiserie.

Gorgeous dresses! I love the intricate traditional prints with the clean and modern cut of the dresses.
