Macramazing...

    I love macrame more than the typical knitting or weaving coz it's more intricate and the craftsmanship is something I would appreciate even more. Like this work by Proenza Schouler seen in the previous runway show in New York. The knotting technique appears like it came all the way from the land of Africa. It's like braided; quite tribal, very unique. I've seen many macrame done by the Project Runway show contestants. Not easy to be done coz it requires lots of manhours spend on a particular piece. Another beautiful macrame is seen on Karlie Kloss in the Dior SS11 ad campaign spread throughout the magazines.

    Does macrame infuse into menswear? Bit by bit, it started to find its way for the men like you and me to also enjoy the beautiful craftsmanship of the knotting technique. Like this cardigan worn by Godfrey Gao on the cover of Men's Folio Malaysia. Not as intricate as Proenza Shouler, yet at least the macrame has a masculine feel - by which looking in a glance one might think it's actually appears like a chunky knitwear. No, it's macrame. And it's by Louis Vuitton for Spring.Summer 2011.
