Checks checks everywhere…and cross-checks to play with! Kicking off the Autumn-Winter 2020/21 season, checks are making a comeback and in all it’s head-to-toe versions and more!
Check it out was surely the call of the season, with the print showing off it’s sleek, structured silhouettes in tones of two. A style inspiration that comes from Cher’s style in Clueless, this maverick pattern is part preppy and part punk. From being mainstream to being associated with Hip Hop, this trend combines the nostalgia of the past with the look of the future.
While checks were busy bringing back all the feels, the designers too were raging on it. From bright tones to monochrome hues, this trend was taking a turn towards workwear and doing so in style. The Brock Collection added on print ruffles, slit skirts and contrasting belts, while Miu Miu showcased diagonal checks and metallic additions.
Preen went ahead of all the others and created a mashup of tees-metallic-checks that gave an insight into their vivid imagination. With patchwork on suits, skirts paired with thigh-high boots, it was absolutely surreal. And whoever said checks couldn’t be feminine, missed out on Michael Kors’ range. With knit dresses, fringes and bias-cut skirts, winter was here and in all it’s style.
Victoria Beckham’s collection included abstract check patterns while on the other hand, Gucci added colour to head-to-toe checks. Saint Laurent’s collection was everything feminine with bow tie chequered shirts, power shoulder blazers and fitted skirts, while Dior was showcasing a little bit of Summer cum Winter with chequered short dresses and jackets.
From Burberry’s check-on-check-on-check and Dries von Noten’s feather additions to retro checks, this trend was here to stay and make all casuals a little more check-ful!
After all the ramp love, it was time for some celeb love! One of Reese Witherspoon’s favourite print (we assume), Kendall Jenner’s sheer checks to Demi Moore and Zendaya’s print play on coats, checks were here to stay! Hands down. And how can we forget Billie Eilish’s Burberry check coat? ‘Nough said.
From Hollywood to home, there were checks at work all over. From Kangana Ranaut, Karishma Kapoor, Anaya Pandey, to Soha Ali Khan, Alaya, Tara Sutaria and Deepika Padukone, there were many many checks and not enough occasions.
The Chequered Collection
After all the things on-ramps, runways, red carpets and even those caz-cool vibes, there were checks for everything. And we didn’t hear no one complaint! So kicking off Autumn-Winter 2020/21, we created a range in gold for all your check plans. ‘Cause, come on, when can you have too many checks?
Here are some quick highlights of this trend:
Confident, bold & assertive, checks this season were making all kinds of cross-hatched connections from a classic to a statement one. Translating these checks at work, we’ve created a range in gold that includes sleek check grooves & 3-D structures for the perfect work add-on.
