Checkmate – Checker Print Trend
Author: Marla Brum of Trend Struck
I’m obsessed with this new checker print trend! Of course we have always been aware of checker prints but like many other trends from the past as they get a modern make-over when they reappear on the fashion scene. When we think of checker prints, it’s pretty obvious that we immediately picture the print in op-art inspired black and white where as the checker print is now popping in other colours – or even several colours! Louis Vuitton’s SS 2013 show was incredible as checkered outfits came down the escalator in different colours and size variations. Many celebrities have already been rocking the print on the red carpet and looking fabulous however the unfortunate part for me is that there isn’t a whole lot of it in stores yet!! How I love this print most is in bigger sized blocks, checkers infused with a print, like the floral MSGM pieces below, or checkers in the same colour but balanced with sheer blocks like the pixie dress below in white.
