Linen dress as a catwalk trend 2019
February 1, 2019
This was a boom-trend on the late 80s, and if had been at least 16 at that time - we bet you were not too amazed at it. Linen dresses and pants, linen tops and coats are now making a great sexy comeback. And you know what - we are just in love with this fact.
Haven’t you noticed that all editors and influencers turning to the natural linen fabrics in their main first-page looks - for all these so Instagrammed faces of new it-girls like Jennifer Lawrence, Bella Hadid (Kim Kardashian - is a non-grata exception, the collections made by her husband never give up the plastic, hi-tech fabrics)
On the catwalk, Isabel Marant and Loewe led the way, giving a new sexy twist to a strange but made of natural linen apparel.
If your budget allows it, you can look for some great standout pieces in their collections, or surf through Dior cruise collection.
All in all, we can’t say that our love to linen clothing is only ours - the year 2019 is falling in love with the amazing texture of natural linen, it's high hygroscopic properties, it’s comfiness and unbelievable style.
Now it is now only associated with a hippie lifestyle, and it got rid of some connotations like - too farm or too antique. Now it looks naturally sexy, it looks simply stylish and minimalist.
This is really a minimalist trend - as for its neutral tones palette and mostly straight model designs.
Linen is one of the world's oldest fabrics dating back to 4500 B.C. The fibers of flax plant it is made of - which grows in much more cooler climates than cotton and is robust against insects and drought - it's laborious to manufacture and has been worn for millennia.
No material used for oversized and little baggy clothing looks great, but linen. Seriously, the stonewashed textured and wrinkled linen fabric makes you look thinner and relaxed. Any other oversized fabric makes your look too much wider and wrinkles unpleasantly in unpleasant places, giving you kind of messy appearance.
But real linen after enzyme treatment just flows off your body, making you look elegantly simple.
Offering linen on the latest catwalks, cookbooks and shows is not only a tribute to fashion, but a tribute to nature, to the environment and smart sustainable living.
