Words by MPDClick’s Trend Journal Editor.
London based designer Eleanor Amoroso has once again captivated us here at MPDClick with her dramatic handcrafted macramé collection.
Attracting attention from a handful of magazines last season with her graduate collection, one piece even featured on the cover of Volt Magazine on model Alice Dellal, just months after graduating. For spring/summer 12 we see the same dramatic floor length silhouettes but with even more detail placed upon the structure of each piece. Black is once again the favoured colour with cream introduced, lifting the collection for summer. It would be great to see what a more varied colour palette would add to this style.
Painted wooden flower petals are noted this season, further emphasising the focus on craft while adding a new dimension through the contrast in texture. All handmade, we cite Eleanor Amoroso as a pioneering figure within a rising breed of true Modern Artisans, a trend MPDClick forecast for spring/summer 13, subscribers can click here to read more.
