Trending: Go For Brocade

Share Button

 

Our charting of trends for the upcoming season continues today with a bravo for brocades. From graphic designs to textured prints, these embellished silken and upholstery-like fabrics made an impression on fall runways.

 

Both home-grown American designers and global names utilized the detailed materials, including Ralph Lauren, Gucci, and even J. Crew. Adding a certain depth, warmth, and richness to a garment, the effect is aristocratic, pampered.

 

Below, we’ll highlight a few of our favorite looks that go for brocade.
