Shop the Spring trend - Ikat print

Ethnic inspired Ikat prints have been hot for some time and they are still going strong for Spring/Summer. They were featured on the runaways of Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Dries van Noten and DVF. Ikat prints are created by dying portions of thread and then weaving that thread into cloth. For more information about Ikat print's history, click here.

Ikat prints are really bright and eye-catching and very boho chic. Just adding a single piece like scarf can energize ur outfit. I am really looking forward to wearing Ikat in silk with accessories minimal so that the print is the focal point. You can also mix and match the prints - I would keep them in the same color palette and the print size small. Depending on the size/color, Ikat can also be paired with edgy rock accessories.... Go Ikat:-)
