Wax & Wu

Vanessa Wu et Wax - Un look. - Paperblog

It’s the fabric sure to bring some diva soul to your summer look. Wax print adds a real pop of color to your outfits, combining Indonesian batik with African fashion and a touch of Dutch courage.


That’s the wax print we like: boldly-patterned waxed cotton fabric that brings together Asian, African and European influences in one piece. With a pedigree like that, it’s hard to ignore!

Stromae put wax print in the spotlight at his Mosaert catwalk show, stamping it on all his creations. In spring, Monoprix surprised us by teaming up with Maison Château Rouge to produce a vibrant, graphic collection featuring everything from screen-printed cushions to ultra-trendy unisex baseball jackets.

But how do you wear this psychedelic, ethnic fabric without being mistaken for an escaped raver from a Goa trance party? With great care! Try a more subdued wax print on stylish accessories such as shoes, belts, bags and earrings teamed with a plain outfit to highlight these colorful pieces. As your wax threshold increases, you can try an all-over look. On larger pieces like palazzo pants or a long skirt, opt for a smaller pattern and team your wax print with a white T-shirt or denim shirt. And a scarf is a very effective way to wrap up the theme!

How does wax print work with shoes?

As you may have guessed, wax print and Vanessa Wu are a match made in heaven. There’s only one pair of shoes to wear with your wax print playsuit or long skirt and crop top with all-over wax print - Vanessa Wu wedges! Whether monochrome, feather print or glitter, they bring out the best in your wax print outfits. For a sharp, arty look, you could also opt for kitten heels to add a dash of glamor to your wax print silhouette.

"From summer to fall, we can’t stop waxing lyrical about this stunning print! And with the sarong poised to become this summer’s must-have piece, you can mix and match with colorful abandon!"
