Trend Report: Patchwork

Historically labeled a “crafty project”, patchwork is making a mighty sweet comeback this spring 2016. Design houses and designers like Valentino, Chanel, DVF and Céline are reinventing the trend all over the runway. Below we rounded up the many different ways it can be done. With this fresh inspiration we are thinking of ways to incorporate the recycled trend into our own living spaces and wardrobes on a smaller budget. Perhaps paper patchwork collage art, or a small section of patches along the pocket placement of a vintage jacket? Or, how about adding a little pop with many different colored stamps layered on a winter scarf... the possibilities seem to go on and on!
