The Fall runways were filled with brilliant brocade embellished clothing, which are a perfect way to add a touch of luxury and sheen to your wardrobe. Brocades fall into two camps this season, opulent Baroque-inspired such as those at Dolce and Gabbana and Balmain and eastern influenced like the oriental brocades seen at Proenza Schouler's Fall 2012 runway show. Whether you are looking for a show-stopping brocade cocktail dress or a brocade pencil skirt to add some sass to your work wardrobe, there are plenty of options in stores. On my wish list? MW Matthew Williamson's leopard brocade jacket and Elizabeth and James' Yumi brocade peplum blouse.
