The most innovative fabric trend I've noticed so far on the Fall 2011 runways is the use of seamless fabric transition or rather felted fabric mixing. Generally sweater, felted with a woven fabric like satin, tweed or Nylon like as seen above. I think the effect is astonishing and I particularly love the contrast between a shiny satin and heavy sweater, or a solid sweater and bold plaid. It feels really modern and very wearable at the same time.
