Fresh-Picked Haute Crochet
Well, well, well, looks like fancy-schmancy WWD has given its seal of approval to crochet! The January 2 issue features a pink silk chiffon hairpin lace ribbon coat by Malandrino, a stunning yellow silk and linen dress by Juicy Couture, and some other bits 'n' pieces. Turns out we ARE on the cutting edge, after all. Whaddya know. I'm curious as to the cost of these items (and I'm too lazy to search, but there ya go).
So this coat in done in silk chiffon. Nice idea. Might be worth a visit to ye olde rag district to poke through the shops for some other off-yarn ideas. Wouldn't be cheap, but could be fun.
These hats by Alison Beth were shown in the accessories insert in WWD for January 2. Sweet and oh-so-easy.
This is the Juicy Couture dress done in yellow silk and linen thread. Very nice
And finally, from the same issue of WWD, an ad on the back cover that shows some very nice embroidery, I'm guessing, that goes over the lovely silver dress. Looks a bit like a version of Irish Crochet to me. I'm just saying....
