Gucci started the embroidry fashion trend and now everyone is following

Spring is just around the corner and it is announcing itself in brightly embroidered colors. Embroidered bags, embroidered shirts, embroidered dresses, embroidered jackets, embroidered leather jackets.  And one of my favorite trends this year, embroidered boots. This year this artful trend is making a fierce comeback! Spring is coming up embroidery!

Embroidery is something that has been around a long time. In fact it is something that can be traced all the way back to the Iron Age of human civilization! Of course it is believed that is was the Chinese during the Zhou Dynasty, around 1045 BC, that are credited for the more modern embroidery techniques we see today. To them embroidery, was considered a sign of power, wealth and rank. The Chinese used embroidered designs on clothing in a way that each symbol had meaning. For example, a plum blossom was meant to bless the wearer with good fortune whereas a crane represented longevity. People are not as knowledgeable about the meanings behind embroidery patterns today. However I would wager and say that the hidden, or not so hidden, meaning behind this years embroidery trend comeback is most definitely, “Spring has arrived!”

For Spring Summer 2017 the designers were not subtle with their use of embellishments, covering the runway in embroidered garments. The normally floral-esque designs of Marchesa were even more stunning this season thanks to the use of embroidered flowers. Rather than just printed fabric, along with gowns from Alexander McQueen and Roberto Cavalli. The jackets were to die for as well! With both denim and leather making a strong statement in the collections of Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Alexander McQueen. The latter also sent his models storming down the runway in some rather spectacularly embroidered jeans. With a pair of stunning embroidered leather lace up boots to match. Last but not least, the accessory fiends Fendi and Gucci utilized the trend via handbags littered in stitch work and beaded embellishment.

Dolce Gabbana has been doing intricate work on jackets, dresses and bags for a while. I could say they were doing embroidery before it became a trend.

I like the use of embroidered appliques which have much more depth to them, than patterned fabric. The stitched flowers and textiles are nearly three dimensional and really catch the light, showing off their exquisite detailing.It is a remarkable way to tie in spring to the collections, as opposed to the tired floral prints. This new embroidery trend looks much more refined and expensive. So get ready to embrace jewel toned stitches this season! I for one am off to find myself an embroidered leather jacket!
