Weaving or ‘haute handicraft’, as it has been beautifully coined by Vogue, is having a revival for Spring/Summer.
The new movement is weaving its way into bags, dresses and shoes in a huge way.
Like in past seasons, lace, crochet, macramé, broderie anglaise (as seen in Louis Vuitton’s S/S 2012 collection) and loose weave garments were spotted in more than several shows on the spring/summer runways.
This season, the criss-cross fabrics are back with a bolder and brighter take, replete with experimental pieces and unexpected fabrics, such as cord, plastic and rope, all of which have been included in a few designers’ collections.
Below, take a peek at our most-wanted items from the new woven trend.
