I love fashion that incorporates textiles that trick the eye.  I found two great pieces @KaelenNYC when browsing the @ParlorShowroom booth @CapsuleShow.  Here we have what looks like a shirt made out of leather treated with gold leaf and feels like velvet.  Below that is what appears to be delicate lace but is in fact laser cut leather. 

You can view Kaelen’s full collection that includes cut-out shoulders and smoldering cowl back velvet dresses on her website here.  And follow her tumblr here for excellent peeks into her inspirations and detail shots from her collection.
