Embroidery is everywhere for FALL 2012. Colorblocking is so yesterday! No wonder the designers have moved on to mixing textures. We all know that fur and bags often don’t mix, and beading can make your purse look a little too precious for regular use, so what’s an accessories fiend to do? Embroidery is one big option for fall, and if you don't mind channeling grandma (or maybe you really dig it), it might just be the perfect, detailed, texture-rich way to go. Take a look at these embroidered bags, from Alexander McQueen to Jason Wu.
