Luxurious fabrics are getting a makeover, with silk ribbons, geometric beading on sheer materials and laser-cutting gaining popularity. Eye-catching fringing
creates fluid movement and shimmering materials emulate mirrored and glistening surfaces. Intricate handwoven fabrics in basket weave, houndstooth and variegated artisan patterns will also
add a pleasing tactility. Keep an eye out for sequin-, pearl- and bead-encrusted knitted appliqué. We’re also looking forward to shiny tape fringing and three-dimensional
yarn tufted and beaded decorations that will adorn simple silhouettes to give them a decorative update.
