Jacquard Joy

From micro minis to full length gowns, designers are positively jolly about jacquard, characterized by intricate woven patterns often produced on a jacquard loom.

I've actually been noticing a lot of jacquard on spring runways as well! It's kind of an interesting fabric for texture, but not exactly spring-like. :)

How fun is that John Rocha? I wonder if I could carry something like that off? Hmmmmm.

pretty*pink*rat said...

That red dress and that white dress...LOVE!

Laura said...

Beautiful! I'd love to design jewelry that would complement!

Jacquard is a little heavy for Florida for anything but a skirt, maybe a jacket...but I love it anyway!

Sam said...

This fabric is so retro - it reminds me of the 60s for some reason. It's got a lovely stiffness to it (sometimes). Very pretty set!!

E said...

The Jonathan Saunders look is perfection - the cut of the skirt, the black pieces underneath, everything.

Laddie said...

I've always loved American Retro since they are ahead of trends. Check out some of their yummy sweaters at online boutique Shoplarousse.com. They are all at least 50% off.

Rachel Follett said...

I love Jacquard, found a lovely little pink jacquard skirt a while ago.
Adore the this season D&G and 'D&G metallic jacquard top'. The Anna Sui top is so cute and the Zac Posen would be rather divine without the trim, I love the way the hair is styled with it too.
