Vichy Print. Why is it called Vichy? To be honest, I didn’t know that either, which is why I started some research on why it’s called Vichy. Couldn’t you just call it checked? In case I got it right you call it Vichy because it’s only two colors and not a huge amount of different colors. Relatively simple, isn’t it? I personally thought there would be a bigger story behind such a “big” name.
Now that we know what Vichy print actually is, or why you don’t just call it checked, et’s talkt about the hype behind this print. I have to admit, that I at first was no fan of this print and I am still not 100 percent sure whether I like it or not. Even though I really like this blouse as well as some other items with this pattern, I still have to think off the gothic scenery a little bit because of this print (at least in black ‘n’ white). I don’t know why, usually I don’t think of this when I see a black ‘n’ white combination. When I see the print in blue/white or red/white I btw think of Bavarian or Franconias beer tents and a veal sausage breakfast. Maybe I am just weird.
However, I paired a pair of simple skinny jeans as well as cream colored suede sneakers by Adidas with the blouse. The shoes where a kind of spontaneous order in Berlin and I really like them, even though I got them a little bit too small. As an eyecather and a pop of color I chose my red Gucci Marmont bag, which adds (obviously) a little more color to the look. The pictures are btw taken in Laa while my Mom and I where there for a Spa weekend (you can read more about this here).

All in all I can say, that I am slowly but surely becoming a fan of this trend and I (at least in black ‘n’ white) start to love it. Btw I tried to build this post a little bit more like an editorial rather than just the regular outfit post. Let me know how you like it, I have to say I had loads of fun while working on it!
