Plaid Around!

As you know, in fashion we are always one step ahead and so, time to take a first small look at one of the trends for this autumn.

I know you must be thinking, summer hasn’t yet arrived and yet she is already talking about the grey days?? Well you are right, but this is what fashion is all about, always anticipating….

One of the first trends identified clearly for this autumn is the tartan…While there is nothing new about it, designers are kicking the classic pattern up a notch while modernizing it and using it in very surprising ways by associating it with other materials such as leather. Also, the cuts are very unusual for tartan clothes as for example Oscar de la Renta which designed a curve-hugging evening gown made by patchwork plaid print, not very "tartanesque" right?

Take a look at how brands such as Carven, Rag & Bone, Louis Vuitton, Missoni, and many others have reinterpreted that classical British print.

Will you dare the kilt?? Well, let's aknowledge that Rag & Bone's fringed one (as seen above) is quite seducing...
