Trend Reporter Liz takes us, color by color, through Winter 2011.
With all the abundance of amazing embroidery in wardrobe this season, it’s the perfect time to bring out a traditional pattern. Inspired by a type of embroidered and decorative tribal textile made in Central Asia, Suzanis were traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day — kind of an interesting tidbit to know about the history of this pattern. We’ve jazzed up the pattern with some royal jewel tones and a little glimmer of gold. The black ground makes it very wearable, and the gold gives it just a hint of fancy to adorn that little holiday bag you may be pining for to make your LBD (little black dress) pop at this year’s holiday parties!
