Trend Watch: Stripes

Stripes, normally considered a staple item in any woman's wardrobe, have been given a fashion makeover for Spring/Summer to include a little more excitement then just the usual Breton blue and white. Stripes were seen at Alexander Wang, Lacoste and Sonia Rykiel, where each designer gave the classic pattern a fine tuning to suit their own specifics. 
 Sonia Rykiel, known for her french knits gave the stripe a colourful, glamorous makeover, teamed with high-waisted black skirts and hairpieces. Alexander Wang worked stripes into his usual mix of grungy cool, adding holes to a striped sweater for a rock'n'roll inspired piece. 

 Lacoste, as designed by Christophe Lemaire who is rumored to be moving to Hermés, gave the stripe a preppy cool with sporty t-shirt dresses in classic black and white stripes. Marc Jacobs is never one to miss out on a trend, and included it in his line for Marc by Marc Jacobs, fusing poppy, electric colours with bellowing skirts and slinky dresses for a truly 80's look.
