Plaid is having a resurgence for Fall 2013, turning up as the pattern of choice for many designers. From Celine’s sublime signature coats,to Hedi Slimane’s controversial ode to grunge for Saint Laurent, today’s plaids are used in a way that is anything but classic.
Mulberry’s over-scaled plaid tunic is covered in clear sequins for a glazed effect.
Celine works bold plaid into new shapes for Pheobe Philo’s covetable coats and mixed, not matched separates and accessories.
Tracy Reese cuts a tartan circle skirt, and pairs it with a sequined sweatshirt for a young, urban look.
Designers, such as Antonio Marras and Aquinlano Rimondi took a more retro, ladylike approach with their mixed media plaid dresses.
Stella McCartney keeps it light, for her voluminous coat.
Marc Jacobs kept it short at Louis Vuitton, allowing the pattern to fade into an embellished border on his plaid coat.
