Lace has been around for a while but was shown very prominently in the collections of spring 2012. I know in the past lace has been known to be used for doilies and wedding gowns, but designers have been changing this textile into something delicate, sweet, sexy, and new. Alexander McQueen’s 2012 collection made lace into artistic glamor and luxury and Elie Saab created simple sweet look for his collection. This just proves how versatile lace can be. When you want a sweet look, a lighter color lace can achieve that. Whereas a darker lace with give you a more sexy look.
I like this trend because it is so versatile, but also has such a delicate look. I love feeling girly and lace pieces give me exactly what I’m looking for.
