Fall 11: Piece By Piece

One of my favorite details to come out of the Milan menswear shows was pieced construction. Yes, we’ve seen bits of this before – more recently in the form of leather inserts – but this time around there are more interesting pieced effects happening. In addition to mixed materials, we’re also seeing mixed patterns.

I also love pieced construction for sweaters, which gives a patchwork effect in the case of Corneliani below.
