I’m loving the rich yet edgy look of brocade that I’ve seen lately, everywhere from Balmain to H&M, on Clemence Poesy and in October’s Marie Claire.  And I’m not the only one.  According to Who What Wear, this "glitzy trend" owes its glory "to a number of intriguing sartorial influences." 

"At Balmain, Christophe Decarnin embraced formerly stuffy brocades and jacquards that would typically feel at home in a room at Versailles and infused them with renewed joie de vivre… The high-voltage look not only radiates a dangerously provocative sex appeal, but it is also texturally stunning and complex. The same electrifying use of mixed materials was also favored at Roberto Cavalli…” – Who What Wear
