exchanging the real and the fake

The fall/winter 2011 season is about embodying yourself with nature. This season is about mixing the real with the fake. We have seen this done before, with fur and faux fur, but this season, the change is through illusions that play with the eyes. Images of nature will be created through textiles - taking the outside elements of nature and using them to be the palette of inspiration for the season. We will see soft distressed leathers that will mimicking the dry cracked ground, as well as jacquard weaves that will directly correlate to the rivets on seashells. It seems that this fall, going green will no longer be just an action, but an accessory.
