One of the biggest trends to invest in right now for AW16 and to keep wearing in SS17 is modern lace, the kind of lace that is Laser cut and a bit bolder than its sister of five years ago.
Thanks to high tech fabrics and designers’ creativity in overlaying lace, the result is resolutely more avant-garde and more colourful.
Designers who are working the modern lace look are young and unafraid to experiment with collages, overlays and colour: Scottish designer Christopher Kane who is celebrating ten years in the business this Spring Summer 2017 season has become a master collage artist using silks, overlaying them with high tech lace and adding splashes of colour with threads and tapes. There are several pieces that each that style currently available in the Autumn Winter collection.
On a more affordable scale but with non-negligible wow factor is Self-Portrait the brand that made the White midi lace dress a wardrobe must have around the world. His current AW16 collection is not only full of colourful and patchwork style lace, but there are some interesting asymmetric cuts and more refined colourways combining, blues and blacks and lavenders and whites.
Self-Portrait fans will also be spoiled with separates, tops and skirts that can be mismatched to create an interesting and unique modern lace effect.
