Pleats Please

As Millennial designers begin to get their bearings in the industry and expand their vendor relations, we’ve been seeing a lot of experimentation with more advanced techniques come into play.  While pleats might seem like a simple direction it can be a real production challenge for a budding brand to master.  As pleats enter back into the public fashion sphere larger brands have begun to take notice but we’ve yet to see these ideas translated into the street-ready looks we know are coming.  Grab a pair of pleated pants with a flare for a power business look, pair with vintage Manolo’s and a string of your grandmother’s pearls for maximum effect.  Grab a grecian number, mix with some gold platforms á la Aquazzura and a cream jacket for a solid day to night adventure look.
