The comeback fashion trend: Embroidered pieces

Velvet jackets, your favourite denim pieces and throw on sweatshirts are all getting the embroidered treatment and it’s a fashion trend that’s sticking around.

Embroidery is on the catwalks, on the a-list and in your wardrobe – well at least it should be.

Kenzo’s embroidered sweatshirts have proved sell-outs over recent years, and if you haven’t managed to get your hands on one yet, the high street will no doubt see an influx of pieces inspired by them in coming months.

Celebrities wear the embroidery trend

Cara Delevingne wore a gorgeous Zuhair Murad embroidered suede skirt whilst promoting Suicide Squad recently in New York City, she paired it with a sheer lace shirt and over-the-knee suede Christian Louboutin boots.

Actress Eva Marcille chose a Yaz Couture sheer, nude and black contrast mini with embroidered rose bushes to the 2016 BET Awards. The combination was romance and 60’s punk rolled into one and the America’s Next Top Model winner made it work.

Olivia Palermo has yet to meet a fashion trend she hasn’t tried, and she threw an embroidered jacket over her shoulders (the only way fashionistas can wear jackets) over her leather pencil skirt and black plunging blouse.

Margot Robbie favoured a number of embroidered looks while on the red carpet recently, wearing two different Gucci looks whilst promoting The Legend of Tarzan and then Suicide Squad.

And Bee Shaffer chose a beautiful black floral embroidered Alexander McQueen gown to the 2016 Met Gala.

Embroidery takes to the catwalk

Embroidery increasingly features in the international collections. Stella McCartney stitched performance materials such as Aertex with swirling squiggle motifs in orange, blue and yellow. Jumpers and jackets at Christopher Kane came with scrawls of free-hand thread doodles. Denim, too, is being transformed. One of the highlights of the spring shows was an Alexander McQueen embroidered frock coat and jeans.

And it’s continuing long into the autumn season with, Gucci, Sonia Rykiel and Valentino just a few of designers to feature it in their Pre-Fall collections too.

Embroidery, a beautiful skill that occupied women for centuries is making an equally beautiful comeback. You might be surprised to learn that fossils dating back to 30,000 BC hint that about the earliest fashion authorities walking around in embroidery.

While embroidery might just look gorgeous on exquisite fabrics, like those seen by Elie Saab, it looks just as good on durable pieces like denim and velvet.

From embroidered bombers to romantic dresses, get one step ahead of the fash-pack and make the winning investment of the new season.
