A/W 17 Trend Report - Loose Threads

For A/W 17 we saw several designers delve into the world of traditional textiles crafts. With a strong emphasis on application, designers Maison Margiela, Alexander McQueen and Sonia Rykiel experimented with knitwear and manipulated fabrics and threads in a variety of interesting ways. Over at Sonia Rykiel, threads hung loose from hems, whilst over at McQueen contrast red threads were plaited onto black leather corset dresses. In an age where designers are constantly pushing the boundaries of fashion and looking for futuristic fabrics and new techniques, it was refreshing to see designers focus on tradition and execute these techniques with luxury precision.
