Women's Trend: Stitched Up

For spring, designers embrace the use of mirror work and embroidery.

By

Designers are dusting off their needles and thread for spring. Whether through the use of sequins or silk, embroidery proves to be a key focus for the season. Cases in point: Laurence Dacade uses needle-painting for the flower motif on its clunky sandal, while Christian Siriano creates an abstract floral print for Payless with a silk-nylon blend. Aquazzura's strappy sandal uses mirror work often seen with Indian Banni embroidery, and Jerome C. Rousseau's block-heel pump gets an embroidered canvas treatment. While the shapes here are kept simple, the handiwork is anything but.
