Womenswear A/W 13-14: Luxe Plaid
Seen on London’s catwalks and now spotted on the streets of Milan, heritage plaids get a luxe update in high-shine fabrics for Autumn/Winter 2013-14.
Distinctly London in its nod to heritage fabrics and tweed-inspired patterns, the trend is reflective of the glam update on grunge happening across the catwalks since last season as fashion continues its 90s revival. Two very different London-based brands championed the direction during last week’s London Fashion Week shows. Mulberry showed an oversized check using glossy pailettes, while youth-focused Ashish took an elegant turn with its sequined slip dress in houndstooth print.
