It’s houndstooth for Fall!
As we all know, checks have been a huge trend this year but it seems that the houndstooth pattern coming down the Fall 2009 runway is going to be just as big. Designers are loving the distinctive black and white check which has a very dramatic look to it, with a classic twist having made significant appearances in the ‘40s, ‘60s and ‘80s.
Alexander McQueen is leading the field and seems to be barking mad for houndstooth with his latest collection! The Alexander McQueen Faithful Tote is made up of a series of traditional smaller patterns as well as some very large blown-up houndstooth wool patterns with patent leather trim at the edges. Definitely a gutsy creative decision with such mishmash patterns, the outcome is actually quite successful – a bag that is anything but ordinary and will make you stand out this Fall.
The Alexander McQueen Faithful Tote is now available in Hong Kong at On Pedder, however, if you are looking for something smaller and easier to carry around, check out the Squeeze It clutch with similar houndstooth pattern.
