Via The Cut.
Brocade is a particularly old form of decorative woven fabric. Dating back to at least the 4th century, it was one of the very few luxurious textiles worn by royalty in China, Japan, Greece, and Byzantium. Nobles would wear garments with illustrative and natural motifs woven into them, often in silver, gold, and silk threads with the addition of precious stones and enameled medallions. Due to the incredible craftsmanship, the cost of brocade remained high for many centuries, gaining this adorned fabric its reputation as the textile of royalty.
This season, brocade has seen a major resurgence in ready-to-wear clothes. Significant purveyors of the brocade trend were Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Jason Wu, and Marchesa. We love Kenzo’s modern interpretation of this historic fabric as the perfect holiday party dress.

Trend Watch: Prints of Animals no. 2
Last week we talked about a new trend prints of animals. This week we’ve got our eyes on a more abstract, cartooned animal print.
Once upon a time (last week) in a thrift store far, far away (Queens), a pair of white, high waisted Miu Miu trousers were hanging lonely on a hanger. They where smothered between jeans from the 1980’s and some nylon sweatpants. Nobody knew where they came from nor did they know what life they once had lived. But I knew that for seven dollars they would be mine. I knew they would have a new life.
One problem with amazing thrift finds is that the previous owner may not always be the same size as you. With dresses, skirts, and shirts this problem is not so significant. You can easily alter the size by using belts or simply wearing the garments in their oversized state. Trousers are a bit more tricky. Luckily, there are many great tailors that can solve this issue.
The Miu Miu trousers went for a short visit at Wiseling’s go-to for alterations, Ramon’s Tailor Shop in NoHo. The results were no short of perfection. Don’t you just revel in that feeling when your garments fit just precisely?
