Needlepoint: On The Rise On The Runways

March 22, 2012  9:36 am

We knew that needlepoint was no longer just for Etsy obsessives when we heard about the Georg Jensen campaign featuring a cross-stitched Freja Beha Erichsen back in February. In the ensuing weeks, elaborate embroideries flourished on the Fall runways. At Balmain, Olivier Rousteing gave a pearl-embellished cross-stitched cameo the house’s signature glam rock treatment; Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showcased detailed tapestry motifs at Dolce & Gabbana; and Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli upped the thread count with detailed, heirloom floral evening looks.
