TEXTURE in 2011

I am in love with the use of texture in the latest runway shows, the all over prints, digital prints of textures. To me seems that we now have more possibilities, because you can make a cotton dress and print on it a nice woolen knitwear texture! We now have the possibility to "wear" wood, rocks, rugs, and even photographs and blueprints! 

Cheers for textures

ps: IDEA I LIKE: mixing all over prints together and putting up a whole look of prints, from head to toe!

Talking about amazing textures...
There's a fantastic American artist who is a great influence on the Mulleavy girls, Robert Smithson is a Land Artist, who creates beautiful drawings, shapes, textures using the most incredible materials, the earth, the sea, sand, rocks, NATURE!! Well captured in aerial photos but ephemeral because it gets lost over time.

Another influential artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a french photographer and environmentalist, focused on aerial photos and made amazing photos of gathered objects or people, or anything... Definitely worth researching
