We chose one favorite look from (almost) every designer showing the Resort 2015 season, featured on vogue.com, and tried to incorporate as many brands as possible, choosing one look only.
Why? Sometimes it’s good to test yourself. We think it’s important to see what happens when you approach things differently than you’re used to. So we zoomed in on the runway Looks instead of the complete collections, like we normally do. Funny thing is; this way we come up with only “usual-suspect” trends: boring! We did look at designers we have never seen before, that’s less boring but also very time consuming, and we all know time=money 😉
Conclusion: We will never again let go of our experience and knowledge about fashion trends, brands and designers. The way we spot our trends is the right way and the fun way!
Pied de Coq or Hound’s tooth. History in a nutshell: these checks originated in woven wool cloth of the Scottish Lowlands, but are now used in many other materials.
Just so you know; The traditional houndstooth check is made with alternating bands of four dark and four light threads in both warp and weft/filling woven in a simple 2:2 twill, two over – two under the warp, advancing one thread each pass.(wikipedia)
