A British influence emerges in the way motifs are expressed, and lends a cheeky note to the entire wardrobe – inner layers, outer layers, pants and skirts. Choices tend to Tattersall and offbeat Prince of Wales rather than windowpane checks. Plaids and tartans flaunt quirky colours, structures and sizes.
On pigmented grounds, in colourful dark colourways, in anti-blacks, mid-sized and drawn with gusto, flowers garnered all the votes. Whether graphic or more abstract, they twirl with brio and brighten the silhouette.
Neat, bold, horizontal or vertical stripes invade the surfaces of shirts and dresses as well as suitings and woollens.
Patterns are inspired by imaginary skies, while slightly strange symbols are selected for their surreal touch.
