Call it a sign of the times. With the old world order seemingly hanging by a thread, designers kept things together by lacing and tying and weaving outfits all over the Spring runways. At Celine, Etro, and D&G, the approach was fairly straightforward, with looks lashed shut safari-style. Things got more interesting at Gareth Pugh, Mark Fast, and Temperley London, where the webbing became an integral part of a garment’s construction. “We used lacing to reference woven textures in Egyptian art, weaving raw leather strips across shoes, leggings, and into knits as a harder contrast to our soft draped silk pieces,” explained Ohne Titel‘s Alexa Adams and Flora Gill. The result? Looks we’d happily get tangled in.
