Trend of the Week: Tweed
Some things just go together, PB & J, Will & Grace, Fall & Tweed. This season’s runways saw models cloaked head to toe in suiting materials, houndstooth being the definitive weave. Ultra-femme dresses and body hugging jumpsuits contrasted with loose, menswear tailoring. Coats and jackets were uniformly double-breasted. Stella McCartney confirmed 80’s Working Girl power blazers are best worn with nothing but tights. Not only fit, but the timeline of silhouettes make this trend kin to the utilitarian theme also prevalent this season. Ralph Lauren moves from 19th Century travel wear to 1940’s noir. Alexander Wang channels a not-so-distant future dystopia, and deconstructed classics ran amok at Balenciaga and Margiela. The future is not bleak, however, at Chanel. This season, the house that owns the monopoly on tweed, interprets the signature textile through space-age ski wear. Think the Mars version of Vale, once the planet is inevitably colonized. These are the 5 must-haves to suit the need for tweed:
- -Men’s blazer
- -Oversized trench coat
- -Houndstooth peplum dress
- -Classic French (Chanel) jacket
- -Grandpa sweater over tights.
