June is for Gingham
Gingham was originally developed in India and Indonesia becoming noticeably popular during the 17th century when it began to be imported into America and Europe. When we hear Gingham, we all think "checker patterns" however, the Gingham fabric was originally known to be striped. Throughout the years Gingham has only won more and more popularity. This fabric grew to be one of the most common and recognizable fabrics in the world. This type of fabric is seen everywhere from tablecloths, aprons, and summer clothes. In the 20th century Gingham became very well known due to a traditional red and white or light blue and white scheme because of the movie, "The Wizard of Oz". Since then many other famous people have worn it from Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot.
We chose to work with Gingham because it fits very well in the landscape of our Summer Collection. The fabric we chose to work with is lightweight and very comfortable to wear whether it's 70 or even 100 degrees out. Our Gingham fabric does not have stretch and it is not meant to be tight to the body. In the summer time it is always best to have a blouse to wear which is breathable. The colors we chose vary from Royal blue, Navy, Green and red which all will add a bold touch to a look that you can nearly take anywhere.
Our garments are made of 60% Polyester and 40% Gingham. We have tested our garment's fabric and when washing the color does not vanish, you may wash it with similar colors. Please wash your garments with cold or warm water only. Do not machine dry your garment as this is a delicate fabric. And remember to never bleach any of Soane Saldana garments.
Now that you know a little more of what you will be wearing, go ahead and enjoy our second garment known as the Chloe blouse which is now available online.
