As we mentioned some time ago at the post about Liberty print we love traditional prints that add a retro touch to trendy accessories.
So today it’s time for Toile de Jouy which used with moderation can add a trendy twist to any outfit (although it looks very classic).
In fact, this print is now a very cool trend thanks to brands such as Carven and famous egobloggers.
So now, mainstream brands like Primark and Suiteblanco are offering some Toile de Jouy clothes at affordable prices.
Some curious facts:
- It’s name means “Cloth from Jouy-en-Josas”, a small village a few km from Versailles.
- It was created in 1760 by Christophe-Philippe Oberkampf, that invented a new way of clothing printing.
- The usual themes were birds, flowers and sheperd scenes.
- Marie Antoinette loved it (check Sofia Coppola’s film).
So what’s in there for our minimoi?
