#1: Plaid Please
If there’s one pattern that was everywhere on the PFW runways, it’ll be classic plaid. Whether it’s on a coat, dress, a pantsuit or skirt, this timeless print was adapted by several designers in all sorts of different ways. Colours ranged from neutral greys, like at Lacoste, to more daring shades such as bright yellow. Sizes also ran the gamut from small, precise checkers to enlarged ones such as at Undercover.
At Dries Van Noten and Loewe, the print was used from head to toe in elegant and perfectly cut pantsuits. While the former presented a more clean-cut silhouette, and the latter a more comfortable, slouchy and relaxed fit, we can imagine that for both looks, the pieces would look just as good separate as they do together.
For some inventive layering, turn to Rick Owens, where different sized prints in the same colour palette were mixed together. Or, try your hands at combining two entirely different plaid patterns in the same outfit, a la Carven.
