i have wondered for a while now what this is......have seen you all bring it up in discussions in designers & collections and not wanted to step out and ask........

so i looked it up....and got a lot along the lines of....:
(French) trick of the eye, used especially in regard to graphic finishes which give the illusion of depth (ie the realistic painting of doors and architectural fixtures on a flat surface).

what exactly qualifies as trompe l'oeil in fashion....??....
the examples here help....though i'm still a little confused...
is it that almost cartoonish 'drawing' effect....?

i dont see it in the jpg pics........

it is usually used to describe something that gives you the illusion (tricks you) of having a bow on it for example, as with this elsa schiaparelli piece:

okay.....
thx anna......

so do the gaultier pics qualify as trompe l'oeil...?
does the 'illusion' have to be through a specific method....or of a specific thing...ei. a bow, belt, etc..?

i don't think it has to be a specific method or a specific thing.
but to me the gaultier pieces do not really qualify.
i'll leave the field to the more elaborate now

The JPG are kind of a trompe l'oeil, but I think it's much more common in regards to a print or something, like those sneakers. It's like, something that looks like it's there, but it's not really there.

Moschino s/s 06


Marc Jacobs f/w 01



Lanvin s/s 03

yeah, the Lanvin aren't a traditional trompe l'oeil, but I though since it suggests a necklace that isn't actually there it kind of fit.

Almost forgot YSL s/s 03, which played heavily with trompe l'oeil effects

I'm not sure myself, I think it depends on what the detail is made out of, like, those printed Moschino pieces I wouldn't think are very hard to make, but then something like the Schiaparelli sweater, or the last Marc Jacobs dress, which are both knit, I would assume to be a bit more difficult to do.

adorefaith, there are all possible ways at achieve the tompe l'oeil effect, from print and applique to embroidery and plain stitching, Sciaparelli was the goddess of this technique
btw, you are welcome, always my pleasure
