SS15 Patchwork

We've noticed a trend for all things patchwork coming through from the SS15 Catwalks. Here are a selection - Gucci's patchworked oriental kimono style prints, Osman's mix & match beading & embellishment, Giles' new twist on animal and Peter Pilotto's multi-directional stripes pieced together in this stunning engineered dress

Vintage floral patchwork

These two beautifully crafted vintage patchwork quilts have been one of my best ever finds from the local Hospice Shop.  I love the crazy mash up of ginghams, painterly florals, neat florals, geometrics and stripes in 50s and 60s colour palettes. The more brightly coloured one has June 1964 hand embroidered in a script font on the back.
