2-DIMENSIONAL & 3-DIMENSIONAL LACE, PAISLEY AND SCROLL
“The feminine fluidity of lace, scrollwork, and paisley balances the more graphic and geometric patterns also popular for the season. Lace overlays in black and white to more subtle cream and neutral tones convey a lingerie-inspired, fanciful look that works perfectly with incoming crepe and satin surfaces. The best seasonal paisleys range from scarf- or tapestry-inspired panels to more graphic, pared down black and white-plus-color looks. Texture is often conveyed through patterns that have a quill-like or bold ‘swirling’ effects, and embossing offers a tactile option for leathers and suedes with the same enchanting result.”
