Stitch Details on Seam – Trend Report
We have a seam line when two pieces of fabric are stitched together. Owe it to the increasing number of deconstructed garments that are showing up on runways, stitches lines are smartly used by plenty of designers to highlight the seam lines on outer shell of the garment. The seams at Yohji Yamamoto were utterly raw with fraying threads. John Galliano’s deconstructed garments at Maison Margiela couture were torn and reversed to reveal even the fusing details fastened by stay-stitches on few ensembles. Haider Ackermann’s RTW show featured plenty of haphazard criss-cross stitches on outer seam lines in irregular lengths and patterns. Alexander Wang took a more refined approach at Balenciaga by using stitch details in a uniform pattern to highlight the seam. From outright raw approach of John Galliano and Yohji Yamamoto to refined technique adopted by Alexander Wang, which one suits your personal style?
