Fanta Pants

Hi ya'll!!
So i finaly broke my perpetual unemployment streak and for the last few weeks have been working at Cose Ipanema, its like a boutique store that sells bit of Dolce, bit of Gaultier, bit of Dries, bit of Comme, bit of Veridi Anne, bit of Giboude and other pretty little gorgeous expensive things... (Ab Fab reference, sad i know....)  anyway, working in such an environment is great and yet so painful to the wallet. I have no ability to save, no moral strength, not back bone if you will. LOL But on the up side my wardrobe is getting bigger and bigger. I am now the proud owner of a pair of friggen AMAZING Dries Van Noten, viscose marble print pants. Pretty exciting stuff!!!

The printing technique used for these pants and that particular Dries Van Noten collection is so interesting. It was Created in the 1920's by a man named Orbis Wirth. Basically how it works is that the rollers are covered in many layers of pigmented wax. The rollers are then, yes, rolled over moist fabric (love that word...moist) and ta-da: psychedelic prints! But the downside of this process is that only a limited amount of meters can be produced with one roller so thus it is expensive and didn't take off back in the day. Anywho, the lovely people at Dries found this lost art and revived it for the AW 09' collection. And i am forever grateful! lol
Also heres a song that reminds me of the pants, it goes a little something like this:

Such a good song! LOL (hemariging as i strugle to write anything whitty... brain = mush)SDC13899
