Scot­land’s fa­mous punk-in­spired pat­tern is the new menswear trend

The Sunday Guardian - - Profile -

SCOT­LAND: Scot­land’s most fa­mous pat­tern is mak­ing a tri­umphant re­turn to the menswear scene this au­tumn. From win­dow­pane to Prince of Wales, peren­nial checks dom­i­nated the run­ways this sea­son, but it was tar­tan that re­ally rein­vented it­self. It’s hard to re­call a time when the her­itage check didn’t make an ap­pear­ance on the fall cat­walks, but this time how it was in­ter­preted felt com­pletely fresh. This year, the menswear mo­tif em­braced its anar­chic spirit—the one adopted by punks dur­ing the Seven­ties which re­turned with the Nineties’ grunge scene—with looks that were bold, bright and worn head to toe. At Alexan­der McQueen, a col­lec­tion in­spired by Bri­tish mascu- lin­ity saw the print cover ev­ery­thing from over­sized scarves to pullovers and belted coats while Ver­sace’s men wore tar­tan work shirts and. The pat­tern also made an ap­pear­ance on more tra­di­tional pieces with Charles Jef­frey Lover­boy and Dries Van Noten both choos­ing to show­case tar­tan on kilts. AGEN­CIES
