Designers Lace Up

Last spring at Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs experimented with broderie anglaise, a form of lace that incorporates patterns composed of eyelets, to create ladylike looks that were both diaphanous and sturdy. This season, designers delved into guipure lace, another hearty rendition of the normally delicate embellishment. Guipure, made from applying needle work to a mesh background, took the form of an airy black coat at Thakoon, while Derek Lam crafted a matching bralette and midi-skirt look. Over at Tibi, designer Amy Smilovic kept it clean with a white lace top and matching cropped trousers.
