Speaking of Embroidery

You already know that Carolina Irving and Lisa Fine love Kutch embroidery. The refined Indian stitches are the signature element on their jackets, dresses and tunics. And soon, with their collection for Lucky debuting next week, we'll see more globally-inspired needlework. Following up on the Fridamania post, Lisa shared with me that she and Carolina are both fans of Mexican embroidery too. So be on the lookout for I & F for Lucky summer shirts with a little touch of Mexico.




Right now, you can take a peek at their beaded jacket and burlap bag, above (yes, an Irving and Fine for Lucky bag!) or pop over to the V & A to see examples of antique Kutch embroidery. I'll update with more specific Lucky links as soon as I have them.
