According to the fashion weeks in London, Florence and Milan red and plaid will be indispensable in your wardrobe by next fall. Browsing through previous fashion week looks taught us that red is simply a revenant color. It comes back every year in many collections of our favorite designers. And when the most prestigious fashion houses set a trend. Chances of it being the next big thing are high.

Every creative director has their own rousing ways to merge a trend into the collection. So those who’ll be waving the plaid flow in 2017, this is the year on which you officially proclaim your sincere love towards your go-to print.

Versace

What Versace’s creative director created in Milan was bewildering. Mixing red shades with plaid prints and leather was never done in such a wearable way. Nonetheless the Donatella that we love never stops delivering for the of guys out there, who crave for a sophisticated aesthetic.

Marcelo Burlon

Later this week founder of County of Milan unleashed his dragons upon us and he too proposes a lot of red clothing pieces to wear next fall. Contrary to Versace, Marcelo’s red is a bit darker. Tending to a more or less a burgundy glow.

Marni

We enjoyed every second of the plaid comeback on the runways previous weeks. Still when we saw the red plaid coat from Marni’s menswear collection we knew it. Plaid had assured it’s place in our wardrobe. It’s only a matter of time.

Tim Coppens

Our latest article dedicated to the Belgian designer pointed out how good their Fall/Winter 2017 runway show was at Pitti Uomo in Florence. Although we had to bring him up again for this matter. We’re only wondering if every piece in this collection will be sold in stores. Because Tim’s talent to make runway clothing wearable in the streets is remarkable. Even with red and plaid patterns he’ll make it work.
