PARIS-NEW YORK COLLECTION:
EMBROIDERIES BY MONTEX
The playful hand of the Parisian embroiderer Montex is evident in the colourful, graphic motifs and trims adorning some of Karl Lagerfeld's dresses in the Paris-New York Métiers d'art collection. A crystal rendition of skyscrapers, icons of the New York City skyline, animates the sleeves, collars and hems of a handful of dresses. Elsewhere, there’s a long gown canvassed entirely with an artful combination of beads, plaited Scoubidous and hand-painted, twisted and pierced pieces of leather.
