Pretty In Paisley: The Resurgence Of The Nostalgic Bandana Print

As we continue to look back on ‘90’s trends for style inspiration, it was only a matter of time before we saw the revival of the iconic bandana print. Although it was popularised in the 19th century for its rebellious undertones and association with Hippie and Rock ‘n’ Roll culture, the motif itself is of Persian and Indian origin, tracing back to the late 17th century. Since then, we’ve recognised the bandana print as a symbol for New York City’s LGBTQ+ community in the ’70s, cowboys in the Wild West, and, more notably, the 20th-century Hip Hop scene.

You may be more familiar with paisley prints on scarves, particularly head and neck scarves, which is the most straightforward way to dip your toe into the trend. We, of course, re-imagined this through a luxurious lens, crafting our latest blue and yellow styles from silk, their square shapes lending themselves perfectly for tying up like a bandana. However, with a use far beyond this, why not try tying the scarf as a neckerchief? Or perhaps as an added accessory to your handbag strap? Carrie Bradshaw even went so far as to tie hers around her arm as a make-shift bracelet – so the possibilities really are endless.

Our bandana-print offering extends far beyond the humble scarf this year too. You can expect fluid dresses, skirts, sweatshirts and blouses emblazoned with the motif of-the-moment, and if the print isn’t distinctive enough by itself, an injection of soft pinks and blues create unique designs to serve you from winter to spring. So if you make one style change this season, swap classic florals for a bandana print that packs a punch. Now that really is groundbreaking.
