Trend Alert: Designers Take On Crochet & Macrame

Although reminiscent of the 70’s and our dear, precious grandmothers, crochet and macrame are making  a strong comeback into the world of fashion.  The reinvention is far removed from the retro version of the past.  There is a sleek sophistication to the pieces, in everything from belts, shoes and hats to bathing suits, sleek dresses and tops.  The look of crochet and macrame is delicate and feminine, and with designers such as: Chloe, Lisa Maree, Etoile Isabel Marant, and M Missoni introducing their respective interpretations on this trend, crochet and macrame may be the season’s ‘must have’ for the closets of the fashion forward near and far.
