Autumn Winter 2019 Trend: Needlepoint

We’ve been rummaging through our granny’s sewing basket looking for inspiration for our first trend for AW 2019; the humble yet beautiful needlepoint embroidery!

Rich tapestries, needlepoint blooms and vintage patterns breathe life into this decadent floral print trend. Think maximalist. Hues and tones from Caravaggio’s still life paintings add threads to this mood, while dark backdrops help give depth to it.
