Looks like scarves and oversized wraps fashioned with the carpet treatment are what we should expect for the coming fall season — that is, if we take a cue from the shows that took place during London Fashion Week. Burberry Prorsum’s collections for both men and women showcased carpet printed throws that were either belted on the waist or worn over flowy trenches or coats.

We also found the same oversized wraps on the Issa catwalk. Their toppers were printed with much brighter hues and looked more modern than the usual tapestry. Peter Pilotto also followed suit with his brightly printed mufflers and capes.

Another interesting show we found was that of Osman. Their scarves were mostly plain, but still very tapestry inspired with their fully fringed edges.

And not one to be missed was the Paul Smith presentation, which was very masculine-feminine, with the models showing up in trouser ensembles accessorized with printed silk scarves that were printed with paisley and other tapestry-inspired patterns.
