Patchwork is no longer exclusively a method of construction used to make leather stretch further for cheap bags. This home-made slash economical way of using smaller scraps of materials is making a big come back. Maybe reflecting the old credit crunch or maybe a greater awareness that the world does not have a bottomless pit of resources make this style make sense and look good
Pucci does it with style in their spring summer 2008 collection.
