Look to interiors for inspiration as fashion designers for the AW 13 season adopt prints worthy of walls and sofas. This direction will be sure to leave an impression in all sense of the word as designs are typically woven with metallic or silk threads for a dimensional effect. Kenzo’s kimono interpretations utilize Art Deco inspired brocades for an ornate, layered look while Dries Van Noten’s Chinoiserie patterns give a feminine edge to his masculine cuts.
