Trendspotting; Bow-Back

There is a thing about trends- If is it trend before you put an eye on, becomes surround system, if it isn't you become a craftsman.
I remember the time when I was obsessed with the bows on the back. In that period I probably collected the most of satin ribbons I have (now they are multitask shoe straps)
Lately, bow-back has been introduced on Yves Saint Laurent Spring 09 zipped dress and it had three bows on the back. This year Topshop did the two bows on the back version and I already seized myself one nude, Lycra tee/dress. Motel last year had one bow on their always charming vintage look-alike prints. For spring '10 Motel made three bows on the back and entitled it Bowtastic. Isn't that just fantastic name for spring key item?
Welcome aboard festival-chic!

I love back details - it's always so subtle but sexy. I have a couple of low back dresses - wonder if I could add some DIY back details ...thanks for some great ideas.

Very sexy! I love the selection you posted, although of course the black is the most timeless. Such a fun, flirty and feminine look!

I had a dress similar to this style for NYE! Glad it's becoming a good trend because it's a great look!

How lovely!!!!
J'adore :)

harbourmaster said...

Very cute, but I must agree with Stacey Kelly above - the bows look like they'd sit either side of a bra! They're wide enough to cover it, you'd think designers would think about the practical aspect and move the bows up/down a few centimetres...

Sandra said...

Very, very cute!!
