Gingham checks are a closet staple and never season-dependent. In an interface with’s Sarah Mower, designer Christopher Kane whose label who celebrate 10 years in business this month, shared, “My mum’s uniform at school was brilliant; it was gingham. Gingham can be put into completely different contexts, poor and rich. Our aunties were all strong, independent, funny people, and just really normal.” After Carolina Herrera presented two monochrome gingham off-shoulder dresses at New York Fashion Week, gingham was also aplenty at London Fashion Week too starting with House of Holland who used it on tiered, ruffled dresses, Molly Goddard who presented it in a sheer format and Peter Pilotto who peppered it with crocodile motifs.
