It all started with Chloe’s pre-fall presentation. Bright whites and deep blacks formed a pattern we vaguely recognized as plaid but wasn’t quite the tartan of our past. A few months later, a similar geometric pattern covered everything from long-line blazers to menswear trousers in the 3.1 Phillip Lim fall show. It wasn’t until Rosie Assoulin’s presentation that same season that our love solidified as we watched a model walk out in the most gorgeous cream, navy, and white sweater we STILL have on our wish list. Yes, we are talking about windowpane plaid, and, yes, we are officially obsessed.
Windowpane plaid is this season’s must-have clean, refreshingly modern take on our favorite traditional pattern. Plaid swoops in with the autumn season like florals in the springtime, but we are always seeking ways to mix it up in a different way. In every silhouette under the sun, windowpane plaid is going to be our new favorite pattern for years to come.
