Toile De Jour

Oscar De La Renta  used a fantastic Toile print in his Fall 13 collection. I love the quirky use of scale and colour along with the blotchy printing technique. 

Did you know that Toiles are actually of irish origin?  Obvious really when you think of the typical subject matter. They were soon popularized in Briton and France.  

Recently i have been reminded of the cheeky Timorous Beasties  London toile.
