Macramé: Knotty Or Nice?
For most of us, macramé conjures up images of hemp-loving hippies, not the master of minimalism herself, Phoebe Philo. But Spring found the Celine designer channeling the festival set with woven vests and jackets. And she wasn’t alone. “Macramé is effortless,” said Catherine Malandrino, who knotted thin strips of leather into a linen T-shirt. Easy, yes, but not undone. At Gucci and Emilio Pucci, handiwork and magpie embellishments decorated bold evening looks for an effect that was far from folksy. And it doesn’t get any more fab than Roberto Cavalli‘s “Ultravixens of Glamazonia,” as we called them in our review.
