It seems as if, when coming up with their Spring/Summer 2015 collections, designers were seriously in the mood to revisit trends and styles of years gone by. They didn’t settle for literal translation, however, and instead reinvented these “throwbacks” by giving them a refreshing spin. This was especially prevalent in the presentation of gingham this season. Of all patterns, gingham is perhaps the most inherently retro, but this did little to prevent the likes of Diane von Fürstenberg, Michael Kors, Joseph Altuzarra, and Oscar de la Renta from giving it a modern vibe in the formm of everything from a breezy maxi to a pastel-colored to paired with pleated shorts à la Palm Beach.
Will you be experimenting with gingham this spring? Personally I’m still conflicted, but I would certainly love to hear what you’re thinking!
