We've seen a renewed interest in highlighting the unfinished. When an embroidery or sewing machine line ends with loose threads it is left uncut and exposed for its raw beauty.

New delicate fringe effects are created, extending into thin air strong statements and logos. This surface treatment is also coming through with polkadot patterns coming off the surface.
