Is patchwork is the new fringe? We think so.

At first glance, the hodgepodge of suede and leather seems like a novelty item—retro, a touch too costume-y, color blocking on acid—but so did fringe not too long ago and now we find ourselves swathed into the ’70s flourish.

Look for designers to take one of two approaches to patchwork for Fall ’16: a full on ’70s story with earthy shades of brown and chunky platform silhouettes, or a nod to the decade’s disco days with shimmery metallics, pops of cherry red and exotic textures.
