It’s time to cast off your preconceived notions about lace. At first, your mind probably flashes back to your grandmother’s table runner, doilies and Madonna’s “Like A Virgin.” (And really, who could blame you?) Well, times are a changing—Christian Louboutin takes lace from feminine to badass with laser cut leather. Don’t fret purists, a lace print cashmere scarf from Kashmere sticks to the classic dainty look with just a slight modern edge. If you just can’t get past the thought of a little girl’s dress when lace enters your mind, grab Bottega Veneta’s shoulder bag; the leather stitching has all of the detail with none of the frill.
