From our grandmothers’ chest cover to collegial style collar to the Must Have of 2015. Broderie anglaise represents tradition, education and order but it has also been transformed into a detail of style by the latest fall/winter collections and cool decoration for Summer.

What makes any woman elegant and refined is it: broderie anglaise, ready to dress Summer up, softly decorating garments we have in the wardrobe and making them extremely feminine. Made in cotton or linen, broderie anglaise is often linked to white dresses finely embroidered with geometrical marquetry, with scalloped edges of sleeves and collars.

Used in haute couture and in nice pret-à-porter creations, the broderie anglaise is perfect to decorate precious garments used on important occasions.

Nowadays we can also find it in home design: huge production of curtains and textiles for objects decoration. It is getting more and more trendy thanks to the large variety of color dyes: white for Benetton; bright faded colors for Valentino; Pennyblack opts for garment-dyed creations; Erdem and Carven transform it in geometrical embroideries, Dolce & Gabbana opts for optical effects and sublime prints with ‘Divine’ echoes.

Superga has now created its iconic sneakers with the shoe upper in cotton, embroidered with broderie anglaise, and outerwear and accessories too, creating a total look boho-chic, such as the feeling created by Chloè.

The broderie anglaise in fashion and design collections puts in evidence love for past: handmade embroidery and the structure of garments. Let’s polish off Chantilly, Guipure, Macramè, Valenciennes and Crochet in all their variations, looking to future and innovation, keeping their unforgettable past.
