Chanel’s Pre Fall 12 collection ‘Paris-Bombay’ was a reminder that Europe’s fashion industry has increasingly turned to India to produce extravagantly hand worked pieces. This collection showed sheer paisley prints which have long been a fashion staple. Paisley prints have slowly made a resurgence on the Spring/Summer 12 catwalks and continue to appear this season too with either subcontinent or psychedelic 60s styling.

How to work a paisley print in to your wardrobe?

  • The print will look beautiful and exotic in a light weight fabric like silk.
  • Keep the rest of your outfit simple to get maximum impact from the paisley print.
  • As always, the easiest way to introduce a new look in to your wardrobe is with an accessory!
