Thursday, 24 February 2011

tunicsTunic today is the most popular and comfortable wear for summer time. This is too light and sexual to attract attention to women and this is one of reasons why it is so highly demanded for many seasons. A tunic is perfect clothing for the heat and on the top of it, it is the best wear to visually correct the shapes if not ideal. Presently we face with various styles and fabric for tunics and to some particular extent they are all drawn towards the roots – the ancient civilizations where they originated from.

A tunic is the garment the present clothing originated from borrowing the base style.  A tunic is known for the quite trivial structure where two patches of fabric are fastened in between on shoulders, the waistline and in the armpits. Women used to wear the tunic to conceal the shapes while men used it a little bit of longer length, about half the knee.

A tunic was typical clothing to wear in Ancient Rome and Greece used by ordinary people and people from high society. It appeared differently, though. People from lower layers of the society used to wear a plain tunic of simple tailoring. The ensembles of the elite, senators and their wives looked quite different. The nobles of the society in Ancient Rome and Greece used to wear tunics made from streaming fabric, belting with thin or broad waistbands for more comfort to have the particular status meaning.

The clothing of the Romans differed from that of the Geek’s. The Roman men wore the toga from above, a cape to cover the body, while women used to wear palla, the peculiar rug to cover the shapes.

The Ancient Greek were known to appreciate the beauty of the body and thus, the toga was neglected for that purpose. The streaming clothes for women with open hands fastened at shoulders and trapped under the bosom were the prototype of dresses that came in favor later a-la Greek style.

The Arab invasions into the territory of the Byzantine Empire till the VIII century brought to quite obvious transformation in clothing. The wardrobe acquired the oriental bloom so calledthe ethnic nature of the costume. The tunics then were decorated with the luxury of eastern traditions. That was one of reasons among others why they became the favorite clothing for the high society members who liked to boast with wealth.

The tunic found its dead season in Europe and during Middle Ages, though it was still fashionable in the East and Africa adding peculiar esthetics in every single country. And the Europeans and Americans used the charm of ethnicity some time later.

The tunic returned to civilization in the 60s of the XX century when the hippies tried to create their own fashion of subculture. A tunic from India delivered by the travellers was liked by celebrities who adopted the garment with an ease. Yves Saint-Laurent perceived the trend and soon he launched the collection of tunics in ethnic style. since that time the tunic is found in the wardrobe of celebrities and ordinary people, luxury puffy women and slim girls. Fashion Houses still launch spring and summer collections with this comfortable garment.

As a specially tailored garment, a tunic is extremely popular today. It is amazing but tunic is found in autumn and winter collections by reputed brands. Lately a tunic was presented as light garment from chiffon without buttons equally suitable as the urban and beach wear. And today a tunic comes as jersey clothing with falling down sleeves resembling sleeveless cardigan.  Luxury silk of juicy color was used for tunics in summer 2010 to make it resembling the cocktail dress of longer silhouette.

If and when a fashionmonger today is willing to look like an ancient Roman or Greek woman, she only has to opt for the stylized tunics which resemble the plain but luxury tunics of ancient time in style and coloring.

In 2010 single-colored tunics of rich shade are trendy resembling the Ancient Greek clothing in the thin belt and V-shaped cut. The folk theme does not yield its positions with oriental ornaments or Slavic patterns as prints and embroidery. The length of tunics varies from the standard to below the waistline to the length of dresses so much adopted as beach wear. Cotton, silk and chiffon appears as the most suitable fabric for tunics.

The modern tunics are launched by most famous brands, from democratic to elite. The cruise collections offer tunics in huge versions. Laced models were demonstrated by Douglas Hannant, while Helmut Lang presented the minimalist asymmetry in models from delicate jersey. Chanel offers the light tunic similar to classic blouse, while Jenni Kayne seemed to be innovative launching the tunic as the sailor's striped vest.
