From a lampshade couture gown and harem pants in the Marchesa SS10 collection to the colorful display of Eastern inspired silhouette’s and accessories on Marc Jacob’s for Louis Vuitton’s runway: Designers seem to be inspired by vintage Orientalism and modern a and re-interpretation of idealized eastern cultures and aesthetics.The Middle East and Far East have been the West’s muses since the Napoleonic conquests and seem to be inexhaustible sources of inspiration.
