Trend AW11 | Faux Real

Christopher Kane AW11

House of Holland AW11

This is not your Grannie’s crocheted throw. Instead, designers this past runway season use printing techniques to create a trompe l’oeil effect with pattern. Christopher Kane added an extra layer of complexity by weaving leather to form a few of his patterned garments. Quite the faux finish.
