Just when certain crafts are dying off, others experience a resurgence, and by that, I mean elaborate and incredibly handsome embroidery. Machines can certainly do it, but most of the runway-worthy embroidery this season fell closer in line with couture than machine-wrought designs. Embroidered options veered both Latin/Central American and Eastern European, while ethnic prints still largely tribal, were evidenced from 11th Avenue in Chelsea to Lincoln Center. See below for some of my favorite looks in this category, and also check out our other trend reports on paint, pastels, and black & white.
Jacobs’ signature hodgepodge style of fabrications and influences has been very “more is more” over the past several years, and this season it truly comes to fruition with pieces that are as unconventional as they come, yet flow symbiotically in the world of Marc Jacobs.
