Where all things beautiful collide

Plaid and all of its variations, like gingham, tartan, glen, tattersall, and check never go out of style, and seem especially relevant for fall.  After seeing the spring 2015 collections last month though, it looks like there really isn’t a season they’re not welcome.  Stella McCartney created light-as-air silky plaid dresses, while Wes Gordon went for a window pane plaid for separates, Oscar de la Renta went bold with an oversized check in baby blue and pink, and I talked about it more in a previous post, but Altuzarra really lead the gingham bandwagon.  For the current autumn season, designers went with more of the traditional multicolored plaids, and a mix of more than one as best illustrated at Creatures of Comfort.  A favorite plaid of mine for the season was at Thakoon, where he made puffer jackets and coats out of a pretty mauve hued pattern for an unexpected combination.  And does it get more French than gingham and a large scaled check?  I think not, and Phoebe Philo was thinking that too at Céline.  Check mate!  However you wear it, and in whatever season, do like I have and get mad for plaid!
