Chinoiserie-Blogchi·noi·se·rie
pronounced (shnwäz-r) n.

1.  A fanciful European interpretaion in art and fashion reflecting Chinese styles through use of elaborate decoration and intricate patterns. In the 17th–18th centuries, the expansion of trade with East Asia produced a lively vogue for Chinese fashions. The most outstanding chinoiserie interior was the Trianon de Porcelaine (1670–71), built for Louis XIV at Versailles. The style featured lavish patterns and palletes, asymmetrical forms, unorthodox perspective, and Asian motifs.

2.  An exciting collection of Asian inspired designs in dresses, tops, shoes and jewelry, debuting at
Rue de Mimo
.

Designers, reading clockwise from the M: Hoss, Hanife, Skunkfunk, Ayala Bar, Poetic License and Weston Wear.

SKFKMarch29We created what’s nue@rue to introduce you to what is the latest in exciting and useful fashion. This week, we’d like to feature a company out of the Basque region of Spain, Skunkfunk.

SKFK fits the profile of what is modern and edgy, and has always been an integral part of our spirited sportswear.  You will find bold, beautiful, colorful prints, and architecturally inspired shapes made with easy care fabrics that marry with your vigorous life style and eclectic personality.

Skunkfunk collaborates closely with talented artists and musicians from all over Europe. Their design and production team is mindful of the environment by using recycled yarns, and pulp cellulose textiles such as Tencel. They ship their collection in recycled, biodegradable bio-plastic made from rice and corn cellulose.

We invite you to come into our store and experience Skunkfunk’s Spring 2013 collection interpreted by Rue de Mimo.

GreenSoothing. Refreshing. A welcome sanctuary of verdant delights. For the latest flourishes in our spring line, we turned to Nature for inspiration. Namely, the organic colors and textures of the majestic Kapok tree—the sacred “tree of life” in Mayan mythology. From creamy mint tunics to lime green scarves, from a pop of chartreuse blooms to a jeweled pair of jade shoes, green is an essential hue in Rue de Mimo’s style palette. Stop by and let us show you how it can be an exciting addition to yours.
