" Patchwork or "pieced work" is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design based on repeat patterns, built up with different fabric shapes; carefully measured and cut to make them easy to piece together "
In September 2006, Marc Jacobs delighted us with a casual spring/summer collection from New York, one of his main inspiration was the patchwork.
This trend is back, WHY?
Well, only WGSN can answer us.
WGSN is an agency that provides fashion and design businesses with the intelligence to drive commercially successful products and services.
This same agency predicated the return of the PATCHWORK trend this summer/spring 2013, the explanation of such fact is the new language of youth people defined by COPY-PASTE from the internet, this phenomenon is called the generation JPEG.
Let's see how the designers played with this emerging trend. Get inspired!
