Themes from the catwalk: macrame'

If you gave a look at the just passed Milan catwalks, you should have noticed the presence of a trend which is being all the rage everywhere: macrame'.
To impose the trend of this kind of lace- once consigned to the pieces of embroideries which decorated the household or bed linen of the grandmas- to name a few, Dolce&Gabbana and Prada (also Blumarine in the past spring summer collection).
Dolce&Gabbana doesn't betray the Sicilian identity of the brand, it gets quite stronger. Here macrame' covers entirely dresses, skirts and tops with 50s shapes, sometimes combined with light dresses with prints of vegetables, on the whole sensual and provocative in a fresh way. The declared inspiration is a cult movie - I posted about a year ago HERE - where Sofia Loren dances Mambo Italiano.
At Prada the use of macrame' is sophistication, made of appliques of little flowers of two tones over boxy coats, jackets and skirts. The aim is decorating clothes with a romantic effect. The colours are delicate, light blue, green, pink, salmon.

  3. I did notice this trend. I feel it is mostly the extension of the lace trend of last few years. But what I noticed most is bare bellies on most shows. We better start doing crunches right away :-)))

  6. I am drooling over this vavava voom trend. It is so sultry and chic. And Prada just always gets it right for me. i think they were the stand out of all the Milan shows for me.

  7. Gosh I hadn't actually noticed this as a trend before, but I see what you mean, and there are subtle differences with how each of the fashion houses are doing it this season. The Prada photos are great - I wonder how long it took to make these fabulous creations.
