Revisited with a twist by a new generation, lace plays a two-way game, demonstrating virtuosity from animal-inspired motifs to sensual designs.
Wild and Delicate
Untamed nature informs a range of expressive designs on this season’s laces. Increasingly complex, hybrid Leavers lace motifs blend references to scales, feathers, bark, animals and their habitats. Abstract spins on classic motifs like spider webs, panther spots, and leaf ribs highlight woven structures on designs.
As younger generations revive heritage techniques, an evolution becomes apparent in knits, embroidery, and crochet. Organic cottons adorned with flowers nod to vintage linens. The 19th century returns in a sweetened version, with finesse in needlework and simple imagery.
Fishnets and Nets
This season, nets and fishnets reveal playful new configurations with an increasingly complex relationship between full and negative space in an electric color palette and new plays on scale. Beachwear references also abound in flirtatious, revealing designs.
