It's amazing to see such a quaint design decorating a high fashion look! Sweater by Suno.
It actually doesn't surprise me so much to see beautiful embroidery from Valentino, however!
This Proenza Schouler tunic reminds me more of Japanese embroidery than needlepoint but is fabulous just the same:
So there you have it. I certainly hope this marks a beginning of a trend that will bring needlepoint out to the mainstream again. It certainly would be good for all of us already addicted-- new stores, new products, and even more importantly, new stitchers to keep our art alive far into the future!
I also have heard that a new movie coming out this year will star Susan Sarandon as a character who needlepoints and apparently, it won't be just a background thing, you will see some actual needlepointing in the movie. If that's the case, let's hope it's not a period piece but something in the here and now. I will see what I can find out about this movie and share it here. And by all means if any of you have any information about it, please leave it in the comments for us all to share.
