Ombre, More Than Just a Friend

Posted by 1 on

Ombre is big this fall. Super big. Epic big. Fashionable, big. [caption id="attachment_1669" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Ombre Tunic Dress by Alice Closet[/caption]

The word refers to a garment that is monochromatic (usually) but has a graduated variation in the saturation of the color. There are many variations of, but the end result is the same. Color blocking, but without the blocking. I spoke about my love of color block last week (here) and while I love the stark division of color, I can't help but be drawn to the intense color juxtapositions ombre offers as well.

With current textile technology, it is possible to create a piece of ombre fabric by using numerous threads that range in color saturation or a single spool of thread that has been specifically dyed to create an ombre effect. This kind of effect can also be created by dipping fabric into a vat of dye (or bleach) and very slowly pulling it out. In so doing, the part of the garment that is in the dye for the longest will have the deepest color. The variation in color will depend on how long each section of the fabric is left to soak in the dye. This week, the treasury features ombre in the very best of Etsy. Stark oranges and clean teals - and everything in between.
