The holiday season is reaching its peak and fashion is having an explosion of trendy printed matters for every must-go celebration. Summer’s flower power continues to bloom this season in dark winter florals by Dries Van Noten, Chloe, Missoni and Michael Kors. Present also are hints of chic geometric patterns imbibing painterly artistic expressions by Gaultier, Galliano, Wundrkind, Marni and Etro. Bohemian prints go luxe in Gucci’s inspirational hippie glam. But one of the strongest prints that rules the Autumn-Winter 08 collections is the resurgence of checks, tartans and plaids as seen in the runways of Dolce and Gabanna, Ralph Lauren, Burberry Prosum, DSquared, Thakoon and Marc Jacobs.
Designers have updated the classic print with a modern luxurious feel transforming the stereotype countryside lass into the princess-like lady of the manor that’s style-check worthy. Deconstructed, ruffled, detailed and experimented on fabrication, the new look creates a refreshing appeal that characterizes its trendy appeal today. From reflections of heritage attractions, old-world Scottish charms and Puritan influences, checks are riding high as fashion takes a new twist styled in prepped-up youthful reinventions. Precious plaids are making the right moves in the season of festivities. The unstoppable fashion-forward approach to these classic country tales breathlessly marks a refreshing comeback to modern elegance. Truly a must-buy addition to every wardrobe and with everything in mind, it’s definitely worth checking it out.
