I hope all my readers in the northern hemisphere are enjoying the blooming roses, the wonderful wisteria and the longer days. I know that I certainly am.
The spring collections are traditionally characterised by floral prints and upcoming summer dresses. This year, however, designers have something new in store for us: Gingham! When most people think about gingham they think about the print that is only seen on pieces of school uniform – (cue the nostalgia). If you think like me, then you also think of gingham as the material that (not-so-haute) cafes use as tablecloths. Neither of these thoughts are particularly flattering.
