Two pattern I don’t see the appeal for
« on: December 06, 2018, 05:09:53 AM »
Plaid and polka dots.

Plaid is so over exposed. I do own 5 things due to the fashion pressure. A plaid blouse with a cute cut, a plaid wool wrap, plaid high waist pants, plaid scarf, one guess polka dot dress.

Now I stay away from them.

Polka dots had its origin in the Florentine renaissance courts, mainly used as uniforms of jesters to entertain the king.  Plaids started out as wool patterns for peasants and farmers in Scotland.  When the English conquered Scotland, they appropriated the patterns for mass production of everything from schoolchildren skirts to picnic tables to polyester lining for raincoats.  Most Asians don´t really know the historical associations so they just wear it mindlessly. 

In the history of textile, the Mughals (Mongolian mestizos who ruled India) had the most sophisticated taste when it comes to patterns and color combinations.  The Byzantine Greeks and Florentine courts do too.  The Chinese have always had advanced technological savoir faire in textile production but their royals have pretty bad taste.  That´s what you get for letting a bunch of nomads overrun your kingdom and spread their raw meat diet all over the land.

Yes, I do like the way Indians use colors and layering colors. Plaid and polka dots are so over exposed. I can’t stand plaid lumber jack shirt that everyone men and women wear nowadays.

Modern Indians´tastes are lackluster just like their foods.  I am talking about the Mughals and their court from hundreds of years ago.

I am bold with colors in the summer.  In the frigid winter, it´s nice to see the world in more muted tones.
