From the high end designers like Tom Ford to mass retailers like Urban Outfitters Mary and I are able to get our far-out fix. What I find particularly exciting about this trend — close your ears knitters! — the focus is towards crochet and …gasp… macrame! And while the world continues to remain eco focused this trend is making taboo materials such as fur, feathers and leather acceptable in small doses. Also thanks to technology faux furs have come a long way baby and are much more realistic. Now pardon me while I macrame myself a beanbag chair to sit and crochet in.
