patchwork on the runway is no new thing.
just remember xuly bët from the '90s recycling
old jersey clothes and patching them
up into new ones.
some brands, like desigual for example
even have a patchworky style as
their signature one.
the above pics are from recent years
and the trend seems unstoppable, maybe because
it can convey so many moods from
elegant to hippy.
what i also like about this trend is that
it can be recreated at home too.
