This editorial from Mixte Magazine highlights the tactile treasures that are coming in for Fall 2009.
Modeled by Missy Rayder and shot by photographer Xevi Muntane, these black-and-white shots are extremely well done.
The photographs make you feel like you can reach in and touch the pieces, giving this editorial an interesting flair.
Implications - Texture is becoming much more accentuated in the world of fashion. In an increasingly virtual world with little tangibility, people are choosing to wear garments that ground them in reality. Big bulky knits, feathers, fur and silk all have distinct feels that serve as a form of removal and separation from digital realities. Comfortingly familiar fabrics will be worn as we enter into the unfamiliar world ahead.
