King Of Tapestry

So even though its summer, the tapestry trend is still hanging about, and will probably come back just as strong coming into A/W with stiff pleats and bell bottoms and other 70's fashion coming into trend, the dark colours of tapestry patterns on bags and shoes especially seem to fit the vintage style.
I've found beautiful examples of tapestry fashion online, especially from urban outfitters, with a pair of tan brogues with tapestry panelling which my friend bought, but they seem to have taken them off their website now, yet have made up for it with this pleated skirt, bang on trend with the pleats and autumn colours.
Pins & Needles Tapestry Button-Down Skirt £40.00
Also appearing in menswear, To-orist's Denim Tapestry Shirt £300.00

Bertie Moco Tapestry Loafer Shoes in Brown by John Lewis £23.00
My favourites have to be from Jeffrey Campbell and ASOS.
I love the combination of the wooden heel and vintage tapestry pattern that create a totally fresh concept for shoes and i think you could say they're a work of art in themselves!
Jeffrey Campbell - Lita in Tapestry £125.00

I was excited to see the new ASOS magazine in the post this morning full of A/W trends and I particularly love the 40s meets 70s vintage trend which included these amazing wedges. I think its the fact that we're used to seeing the platform wedge boots typically in leather and not soft fabrics with light colours but the fresh floral pattern and super high wedge make these irresistible, i definitely have these on the top my wishlist!
ASOS ABLAZE Super High Wedge £60.00
