Stripes VS Grid : Trend Report SS15

While stripes are no stranger to spring runway for once, a spring stripe that's not "nautical". Lets celebrate the freshness of these strong, multi-colors, graphic, non-nautical stripes, they were iterated in various directions, widths, and on different fabrications. Designers haven't shied away from all-over stripe looks, Giles and Suno did striped pyjama trousers and suits, Preen went for cricket stripes, and Peter Pilotto offered asymmetric panels on skater dresses, carrying varying stripes to good effect.

We also now have a sister trend on the grid, literally. Grid. Whether it be sheer, lattice, die cut or disguise as gingham its all here. Snappy black and white windowpane checks bring mod flair to strait-laced shapes demonstrated by Proenza Schouler, Balmain and Versace. Gingham doesn't have to be vanilla and strictly at children's picnic. Adult vision of gingham was seen on: soft knits and layered at Oscar De La Renta; chic wrap dress at Diane Von Furstenberg and sleek shirt and pencil skit at Altuzarra. So put that on your next S/S check list!
