Back to the 80's

A fresh editorial of highly colorful, 80's inspired knits a la Benetton was featured in WWD on Monday. Benetton recently hired color master Jean-Charles de Castlebajac to reinvent the storied brand and they held their first-ever runway show in Milan for Fall 2019. A bellwether for things to come?

It's A Jungle Out There

I just got back from India for work...sorry for being MIA!

I was looking at a lot of prints on the trip and there were tons of parrots and toucans. Apparently they are fond of them over there in India and they are often accompanied by chili peppers!  The last one on the houndstooth background feels more appropriate with the current shift toward classic menswear patterns.

Check Please!

Menswear-inspired patterns were prominent in the Fall 2019 shows but buffalo and jockey-like checkerboard patterns really stood out this season in Paris.

The entire Dior show revolved around checks and bucket hats. (The hats were amazing!)

Nicholas Ghesquiere's Louis Vuitton is a bellwether for everything, IMHO. You can see the checks on the cardigan layered  under the v-neck but it was on several non-knit pieces throughout the collection as well.
