As you might recall, Marji was in NY late last year, and she very kindly offered to find some trim for my yummy red mohair boucle. Thank you SO very much, Marji! I visited Mood myself just a week ago, and it's an eye opener. As the saying goes, there's no place like it!
Cap'n, I'm givin' ye all she's got:
So here we have four interesting possibilities - an all-black grid, two in red & black and very different from each other, and the fourth a very interesting one combining red with grey instead of black. I truly love that one for its out of the envelope colour combo, but want to save it for something either somewhat more orange or plain grey, probably the latter, to make the orange serve as an accent.
How do you like the plain black mesh? I think it needs something - the effect is a tad severe. Because it's black, I think I'll also set it aside for an easy match to something else.
WOW! This one's really a WOW, isn't it?! Baroque and Rococo and more! My only fear is that it might be a bit overwhelming on a jacket. But on a longer coat, it would really rock! Wouldn't it?
OK, we're down to #4, the proverbial last but not least. A bit more restrained...whew! I have enough to trim up four pockets, and probably the shoulders too - as that appears to be the Langerfeld touch in recent years...
What say ye, ladies? Let's put it to a vote: which trim works the best? Don't be shy - you already saved me from the icky heavy metal and the fuzzy caterpillar.
