The flirtatious aesthetic and the love of bows have brought blouses with laces or sliding ties to tie on the front to the forefront of the fashion scene. How to wear this “Scandi blouse” and where to find it at a low price but still of high quality? Anatomy of a trend.

It has been in fashion in France for a long time. But now he is also becoming famous internationally.

Where did the tie-front blouse trend come from?

When Calais-based Marie Dewet created the MaisonCléo brand with her dressmaker mother in 2018, it quickly exploded thanks to this model of blouse closed with two or three laces, both regressive and sensual. She thus reinvents a peasant outfit that has existed for centuries in the Old Continent and that Yves Saint Laurent had already made chic in the 70s, in particular.

Thus, MaisonCléo, almost alone, revives the fashion in France of shirts fastened at the front with a few knots instead of buttons. Since then, slowly but surely, this trend has conquered other fashion capitals, such as London, New York, Los Angeles and Copenhagen.
