Both brands churned out candy stripes in various renditions. Balmain’s vertical stripes gave it retro appeal, while Givenchy’s design also featured ’80s-esque polka dots in psychedelic colours.

Opening Ceremony’s orderly design came in bright, punchy hues, boasting barcode stripes for a fun, modern update. Proenza Schouler opted for a geometric take, with stripes placed strategically to form rectangles and squares.

These head-to-toe stripe ensembles are for folks who aren’t afraid of being bold and daring. On the left: A pantsuit with diagonal stripes for an edgier look. On the right: Americana preppy with red, white and blue stripes.


These show-goers, meanwhile, opted for a more subdued take on the trend by playing up neutral and dark colours with candy stripes.
