Fine China Prints

They say inspiration can come from anywhere (films, books, music), but today’s trend is derived from an unlikely source: your dining table, and more specifically, your dishware! The striking cobalt blue and white prints spotted on the Valentino and Just Cavalli runways evoke classic Delft china from the Netherlands, featuring florals or farmhouse scenes that have been popular for centuries.

Fine China Print Pieces

Ruffian: Toile de Jouy Blazer ($995) The toile print on this blazer adds an element of charm to a polished sleeveless shell and slim trousers. Diane von Furstenberg: Floral-Print Leather Wallet ($160) The fine china obsession hasn’t escaped accessories. This bold printed wallet is an easy way to work the trend into your repertoire. Keds: Champion Floral Sneakers ($45) in White/Blue. The classic canvas sneaker gets updated with a floral print.
