Check Mate


As the new season gets underway, we are seeing a welcome return of the winter stalwarts. Tartan takes center stage once more but this year all is not as before. The new season twist? Colour! Where tartan was often a sombre affair (grey, navy and bottle green are to be found in many a kilt) this winter’s version is both bright and beautiful.

The brands to watch

Unsurprisingly, Burberry leaps immediately to mind when one thinks of tartan. This year is no exception. The British house is behind some of the most avant-garde reinterpretations of the classic check. High colour is the order of the day, be it sunshine yellow, sky blue or vivid red. So too are clashing prints as evidenced by the patchwork knitted poncho in bright and bold hues. Loewe and Comme des Garçons have also been drawing inspiration from the highlands this season, as have Stella McCartney and MM6 Maison Margiela who worked a simpler interpretation of check into their bag collections.

a word from our buyer

Tell us a little bit about this season’s tartan trend.

Tartan is a Scottish heritage print but today it makes a huge comeback in many fashion shows thanks to multiple colour makeovers.

Which designers have been working with tartan this year?

We have seen this trend on the runway at Burberry where Christopher Bailey mixed tartan with plastic, leather and knitwear.

Do you have a favourite product that really embodies the trend?

If I had to settle for one item it would have to be the Loewe hammock bag. It’s a versatile and original bag that makes a huge difference to every outfit. The shape is thoroughly modern with a perfect mix of structure and slouch.

How do you recommend mixing tartan into your everyday looks?

You have to find your own way to wear this print. You can wear a total black look to which you add a tartan bag which will always be very chic. Of course, you can also take a leaf from the Sex Pistols book and go more punk. But whether you go for classic or punk, you have to have this print in your wardrobe this winter!

How to wear it

Put your best foot forward! To add a fun and functional tartan twist, look no further than the humble sock. Burberry sent a check, Argyll version down the runway under strappy sandals. If this seems too daring (or just too darned cold), pair with turned-up jeans and brogues.
