THE MARBLED PRINT

THE MARBLED PRINT

Since summer 2015, LEMAIRE has been developing original prints derived from marbled papers and watercolors with l’Atelier La Folie. The marbled print from the Fall-Winter 2021 collection is inspired by Japanese prints. The serpentine patterns winding through the print arise from a process called suminagashi(« flowing ink »), a Japanese marbling technique where ink is floated in pure water then transferred onto a sheet of paper gently placed on the water’s surface.
This pattern is then printed on a dense and dry poplin weave cotton. This season the marbled print adorns three pieces of the women's wardrobe: an overcoat, a vareuse dress, and a vareuse top.
