Folksy Clothing: Of the People, For The Fashion Set

-------

Traditional folk costume is experiencing a modern revival. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli wove an enchanting tale on the Valentino Fall runway, showing floral embroidered dresses and tapestry coats that evoked the peasantry (granted, there was nothing common about these clothes). Then Erdem Moralioglu went Amish on us with a crafty new Resort collection full of hexagonal patchwork quilting motifs. Earlier this week, Marc Jacobs got into the mix with stiff A-line frocks overlaid with lace that were fit for a matryoshka doll. Speaking of, you can often spot real-life Russian doll Ulyana Sergeenko preening for the street-style photographers in her own old-world-inspired designs.
