Patternpeople : Winter 2010 inspirations, Japan Fashion Week
Lace and crochet
Been seeing some gorgeous uses of lace and crochet on the Tokyo runways, and noticing a big trend towards lace prints in the U.S. and Europe marketplace coming up soon.
Everlasting Sprout (top image) showed some folksy knits reminiscent of recent films "Where the Wild Things Are", and "The Fantasic Mr. Fox", particularly the fox mask/hats, and the child-like sets. Phenonomenon paired naive-style animal and nature imagery with hard rugged 90's inspired pieces like black kilts, combat boots and even some bondage-gear-looking leather straps. The juxtaposition really shouldn't work, but it does.
