The Chevron Fashion

For those who don’t know, chevron prints are wide, zigzag lines that are doing the rounds in clothing and accessories these days. You must have seen them on palazzos, tunics, clutches and even nail art but unfortunately, this funky style has remained under-rated and never made it to the forefront — until now!

Chevron prints comes in all colours and sizes and can instantly brighten up your life. Some might find the zigzag lines a bit too much but here is the good news: Chevron prints look as great in interior decor as on clothes! Check out our tips for how you can add these prints to your life and get your groove on.

The best thing about chevron prints is their versatility. If you are apprehensive of wearing them, play it safe by starting with chevron-printed accessories to liven up your outfit. A neon chevron scarf will look great with a darker-coloured cardigan, for example and also keep your cosy as the temperatures begin to cool down this autumn. Accessorize with chevron purses, jewellery and watches to give yourselves an extra pizazz. We promise you will love it.

For those who feel chevron lines will be too risky but love the idea of this jazzy style, we have a solution. Why not add some zigzag to your home? Start off with some chevron-patterned throw pillows or cushions to test the water — if you don’t like the feel, they can easily be replaced. Avoid spending too much; get some old fabric, pick out two shades that you think will complement each other well and paint alternating zigzag lines on it yourself.

History

NOW:Missoni’s ’70s knits proved the perfect mix of color blocking and tribal inspiration for the spring, summer and fall 2011 season as seen in Harper’s Bazaar.

Zig Zag Zig Zag.

Known for its multitude of colorful kaleidoscope patterns including abstracts, florals and the eye-catching chevron stripe, the distinctive design created by Tai and Rosita Missoni in 1953 has certainly been copied before. Originally championed in the U.S. by Diana Vreeland, editor of Vogue magazine, Missoni reach the peak of their influence in the fashion world in the early 1970’s. Run by the husband and wife team until handing over design duties to their daughter Angela in 1996, the house of Missoni was remarkable for staying above the many trends of the fashion world.

THEN: Hitting their stride in the early 1970’s, Missoni started out as a small knitwear workshop in Gallarate, Italy, in 1953 opened by founders Rosita and Ottavio.

When Target’s low cost versions of Missoni products went on sale causing a stampede on stores (with lines up to 100 people long waiting for restocking, and Target’s website crashing repeatedly), everyone was tempted, even mass fashion boycotters like us. The line sold out within 24 hours. Many items appeared on eBay within hours, at two to three times markup.

FUTURE: The Chevron stripe’s classic boldness is perfectly suited to fashion’s ongoing taste for imaginative contrasts and the eclectic.

With the Target collaboration, only time can tell whether Missoni has cheapened their name for good. One thing is for sure, the incident reawakened a desire for all things chevron striped. Seen everywhere from tights to menswear and DIY paint tutorials, the graphic stripes and chevron patterns have a classic yet modern boldness that never goes out of style, however we incorporate it into our lives.
