Where all things beautiful collide

Happy Arbor Day!  My way of honoring the beauty of trees is by sharing one of my favorite things about them…woodgrain!  I could quote a Beyoncé song right now, but I’ll refrain.  One of the best things you could do to preserve trees is to wear them in fabric form instead of chopping them down.  A couple designers were inspired by trees (at least I think they were), or the very similar pattern moiré, for fall 2014.  Proenza Schouler’s collection was alive with pattern on pattern, and Pedro Lourenço brought woodgrain to the future.  These collections reminded me of a couple collections from 2011, Rodarte spring, and Céline fall, and the lesser known woodcut work of artist Josef Albers, which I’m obsessed with!  On this special day, do something kind for the earth and plant a tree or two, or at least wear their iconic print!
