Fall 2011 runway: Seamless fabric mixing

Alexander Wang and Shaun Samson for Central Saint Martins

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.
