12 March 2012: We Love Chiffon!

We Love Chiffon!

Every lady loves a bit of romance in their wardrobe and there is no fabric that says romance better than chiffon. Longer-term fans of Luphia Boutique will have already noticed – we love it!

Chiffon is lightweight, beautifully textured and drapes wonderfully: its sheer, flowy effects and the touch of chiffon alone are just great in-sync with your romantic mood.

So what is chiffon?

Chiffon actually comes from the French word for rag or cloth. As such, it’s no surprise that it can be made from silk, cotton or synthetic fabrics. Silk chiffon has the highest price tag as you might expect. Its natural fibres provide a rich shimmer and slick texture; it’s also surprisingly strong for its weight.

So it follows then that synthetic materials such as polyester are most commonly used to make chiffon for daily wear. Many synthetics also have the advantages that they take dye well, are delicate but quite sturdy and, compared to silk, relatively cheap to make. There are few downsides to chiffon, but the seamstresses among you will know its weight and texture make it tricky to work with, regardless of fabric type. And its delicate nature means it should be treated carefully – hand washed with cold water only (not in the washing machine please!).

Why we love chiffon?

One thing chiffon certainly is, is versatile, most often used in blouses, skirts and dresses as well as in scarves, belts, ribbons or accents. Given its sheer, smooth, lightweight, flowing nature, chiffon is naturally a major part of Korean fashion.

And it’s versatile in its application too: chiffon can be very casual (think of a chiffon blouse tucked into jeans or flowing over jeggings), office-friendly (maybe pair a chiffon pleated dress with a simple top/shirt and blazer) or dress it up for party time (a lace tops sit wonderfully well with a pleated chiffon skirt and pointed high heels). Relaxed or elegant, you style it! In formalwear such as wedding or evening gowns, chiffon usually works well as an overlayer to a more opaque fabric like satin. Its soft and light, smooth and sheer nature gives the dreamy and romantic feel where it floats on top of the gown. Hey girls, sky is the limit on how you wear chiffon!

As our motto at Luphia goes – fashion is fun without spending a fortune! We have chosen only the best synthetic chiffons, and one or two silk-based lines (hey, we have to spoil ourselves sometimes)!

Here are just some of the chiffon pieces currently available in our boutique:

1) Two Pockets Dotted Chiffon Blouse


 

2) Dotted Pleated Flowy Long Skirt


 

3) Spotty Dotty Chiffon Jacket

 

4) Kate's Elegant Lace with Pleated Chiffon Dress

Spring/summer season is almost upon us! So apart from our soft, pale and mono chiffon lines (still the bestsellers as they are very versatile in pairing with others), we are also injecting colours and prints to our collection to go with the seasons...we will also be stocking some flowery and dotted prints chiffon scarves very soon too, so watch this space!

Here’s a sneaky peek of what’s hitting the Luphia Boutique this week...

1) Vintage-inspired flower printed dress

 

2) Printed chiffon scarves (three colours available)

 

3) Sweet Dots chiffon blouse
