Despite the fact that the Autumn/Winter 14 catwalks are yet to really get underway in Paris, a trend we've already noticed from the cold-weather collections is one with traditional appeal.
From customary Nepalese influence in New York at Prabal Gurung to ultimate craft-friendly fashion on the catwalk at Burberry Prorsum in London, it seems that old skillsets die hard – and designers are making a rehashed return to more functional form.
Most apparent to fall under this category aesthetic is the appearance (mainly in Milan) of a micro-trend concerning patchwork prints.
Yes, that historical way of recycling worn clothing into warm quilts is back, and it's been given a fresh lick for next season by way of graphic pattern and bright, colour blocked colour options.
Here are a few on the Buro 24/7 Middle East radar, thus far...
