LONDON: There is something about mixing it all up since the last seasons, and for the winter collection we saw lots of patchwork patterns, materials and designs. I would say that Prada gave the kick-off start this spring/summer with their untrimmed linings, their patchwork way to layer material on top of linings and by leaving the trims rough and raw. Suddenly a skirt, blouse or dress feels fragile and very modern.
The coming season patchwork means also to play with non-matching proportions (Céline), with glossy materials on classic tweed (Miu Miu) and a typical patchwork mix we all remember: Similar to a patchwork blanket on our bed, so chic that you can wear it as a cape (Chloé).
