Quilting isn’t limited to arm candy this fall. Like the chicest form of a creeping vine, the celebrated Chanel handbag pattern has spread to every imaginable fashion item from head to toe. Perhaps it stems from home décor’s current obsession with texture—Coco certainly found endless fashion inspiration in her Parisian apartment—or just the desire to feel warm and cozy when temperatures dip. Layer it on in leather, knits, denim and nylon from puffer coats to capes to separates. For a lighter approach, consider quilted accessories and accents such as along hems. Or go bold in printed versions that brighten up the waning daylight.
