Trend watch: Quilted clothing, accessories and beauty

Traditionally used to add warmth to winter garb, the quilting technique is now being applied to clothing and accessories in both classic and faux finishes

Quilting isn’t new (hello iconic Chanel bag), but a bevy of famous brands, including Rag & Bone, DKNY, Balmain and Kenzo, reimagined the technique on the fall runways. You can shop the trend at local NYC stores such as Tibi, Aritzia, Massimo Dutti and Lord & Taylor.
