gaga for gingham

I keep seeing more and more gingham in unexpected places (Chanel Resort 2011) and just love it. It reminds me of summer and picnics, but at the same time feels crisp and modern.

Sidenote: The name originates from the Malay word ging-gang, meaning striped, which is how it first showed up to Europe in the 17th century. Starting in the mid-18th century, it was produced by Manchester mills where it was woven into the check pattern associated with it today.

    Love the post! Who knew a design so associated with a table cloth could look so good in other ways!

    Awesome idea for a post! Love it! How did you know about the Brigit Bardot wedding dress? SO COOL! I’ve always loved the Guess Girl gingham with denim too! It’s cliche americana, but I don’t care!

    up your sense of vogue, and only to obtain no matter you have found out wherever you have fulfilled.

    It’s truly very complex in this busy life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use the web for that purpose, and obtain the most recent news.
