This spring, a new word has been added to the fashion lexicon: collage. Mixed up, muddled up, mashed up – we're talking about incredible patchworks of patterns, textures and embellishments taken to almost couture-like levels of skill. This trend offers some of the most unexpectedly desirable clothes of the season: from Proenza Schouler's perforated leather and photo prints to Erdem's python and lace dresses. This is where fashion meets art.
