Origins of Lace
Lace-making goes back in history to ancient times, and the lace we know today came to life in the 15th century. In the beginning, lace was a local handcraft, but has now become an industry of its own.
Time will tell us that lace has long expressed the heritages of different parts of the world. Even the ancient Romans, the clergy of the early Catholic Church, Rennaisance men, and Native American Tribes in 19th century North America wore and used their own identifiable styles of lace. Lace pattern cataloguing was historically location-based, and inevitably so, as different regions possessed their own distinct designs and patterns which illustrated their specific traditions, customs and particularities.
Lace Is A Mainstay
The popularity of lace coincided with the development of printing presses when printed materials were forthwith used as a medium for the spread of lace-making knowledge and methods. The emerging demand for lace was met during the Industrial Revolution when machine-made lace rose to the forefront. Hand-sewn lace had begun to fall away with increasing advances in technology. Handcrafting lace had then become an enthusiast's hobby, and artisan craft.
In the light of fashion, the fascination with lace flourishes more now than ever. Ruffles to collars, edgings and trims, and hats to dresses, are constants in propelling lace forward, through diverse and passing times and trends.
The Beauty of CHANEL Lace
Season after season, lace has adorned the runways in Paris and New York. Lace begs to be, not just a trend, but a definite element for current and future fashion. CHANEL lace brings elegant details to dresses, skirts, blouses and jackets. As if a simple lace trim is not enough, how about a pair of CHANEL lace camellia-covered sneakers, flats or boots. CHANEL cutout lace mini dresses, long fully laced evening gowns, sequins lace cocktail dresses, black lace clutch bags, and black lace-covered sunglasses as mere hints of remarkable beauty that is to come.
Coco Chanel And Lace
This is what Coco Chanel had to say about lace on April 19, 1939: "I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin."
When it's authentic, and not a cheap replica, the CHANEL lace masterpieces are certainly jewels of magnificence and beauty.
