AW10 | Patchwork

Michael van der Ham, Mary Katrantzou, vintage flour sack quilt

Although there is talk that we're slowly moving out of our current recession, one can't help feeling a bit of nostalgia for previous times of hardships. Patching together fabric - from flour sacks to denim - has been a common practice in bygone eras. Could it be that designers this season are responding to this and are creating a modern interpretation? At any rate, you can have your pick of styles varying from Louise Gray's bold ethnic concoctions to the more sophisticated montage by Erdem, or choose a romantic floral as composed by Michael van der Ham, Mary Katrantzou or Rodarte.
