We knew that needlepoint was no longer just for Etsy obsessives when we heard about the Georg Jensen campaign featuring a cross-stitched Freja Beha Erichsen back in February. In the ensuing weeks, elaborate embroideries flourished on the Fall runways. At Balmain, Olivier Rousteing gave a pearl-embellished cross-stitched cameo the house’s signature glam rock treatment; Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showcased detailed tapestry motifs at Dolce & Gabbana; and Valentino‘s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli upped the thread count with detailed, heirloom floral evening looks.

A Look Inside The Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs Book, Freja’s Cross-Stitch Campaign, Fashion Fringe On Tour, And More…-------
The new Louis Vuitton/Marc Jacobs book is not due out until April (in conjunction with the exhibit opening at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris), but Hintmag.com got a sneak peak at some of the images in the tome. The book also includes essays by fashion historians and editors. [Hint]
Freja Beha Erichsen is now available in cross-stitch. The model is the star of Scandinavian jeweler Georg Jensen’s new ad campaign, which Jensen commissioned cross-stitch artist Inge Jacobsen to make. The eight images took an estimated 2,000 hours to produce. [Telegraph]
Fashion photographer Paolo Roversi, who has photographed for the likes of Valentino, Christian Dior, and Cerruti, has a new exhibition debuting in London this month. The show, opening at The Wrapping Project-Bankside, includes images from his “Nudi” and “Studio” series. [Dazed Digital]
In an effort to “connect the U.K. regions with the London fashion scene,” Fashion Fringe founder and creative director Colin McDowell has announced he’s launching a tour in March, making appearances with designers at various U.K. fashion schools. The group of designers includes Christopher Kane, Giles Deacon, Julien Macdonald, and Erdem Moralioglu. [WWD]
Earlier this year, Copenhagen was named the world’s most livable city by Monocle magazine. With their newly remodeled Madison Avenue boutique, silversmith Georg Jensen is extending some Danish warmth and hospitality to cool New Yorkers. Featuring a sleek, glass-walled fireplace, shag rugs, Scandi-modern furnishings, and barlike counter, the shop is a cross between a museum and a streamlined Scandinavian home of the sort that fill the pages of design magazines and that make Tyler Brûlé coo. Jensen’s U.S. president James Crespo is positive about the brand’s expansion, despite the shaky economic time. “A brand like ours is right on target with how people are feeling right now,” said Crespo. “They want the reassurance of something that has longevity. Our products are literally handed down from one generation to the next.” And who wouldn’t want to make room on the family shelf for a sinuous “pregnant duck” pitcher or stainless-steel frog paperweight by Jensen designer Henning Koppel? A newly re-issued Astrid Fog valentine pendant doesn’t make a shabby soon-to-be heirloom, either. Home, after all, is where the heart is.
