While I’m jealous I couldn’t see these gorgeous sights for myself in person, I’m eternally grateful to artist and fellow textile designer Liz Brizzi for sharing her photos from a recent trip to Israel, Greece and Turkey. This post is the final installment of photos from this trip, I certainly feel I saved the juiciest inspiration for last. But don’t you fret, Ms. Brizzi has hinted there is another trip on her horizon. Look forward to more Brizzi Abroad in the new year. To find out more about Liz, visit her website and Etsy shop.
Although there are different ways of interpreting [and naming] this trend, you can’t deny that it’s out there. I am quite fond of the term foulard, although I’m not sure it covers the whole breadth of the style. It’s part scarf, part menswear, and has a strong cross-over with the geometric styling of Islamic patterns. I love seeing how these designers have incorporated such a classic element into their spring collections.
