First of all I have to get one thing off my chest: The first 2 days of New York Fashion Week Fall 2008 are booooorrrrinnng! I’m falling asleep at the computer just trying to muster up some excitement and hoping the best is yet to come.

Even though buying my new car battery is more exciting than what I’ve seen so far, I did manage to recognize a few recurring themes amongst the collections. The greatest of these is plaid and from the looks of things, plaid may be dominating our closets just as much as, say, the V-neck Tee did in 2007.


Take a look at Y-3, Preen, Ruffian, Lacoste, and Adam’s take on the trend. While Y-3 has taken the more sporty approach, Adam and Preen chose a more romantic way to incorporate plaid with the latter creating flowing dresses and blouses out of Chiffon. Yoji Yamamoto used Red, Blue, and Yellow throughout the plaid portion of the Y-3 show in heavy tweed and flannel while Ruffian and Lacoste used Purple, Green, and Turquoise. It’s all ultra wearable and easy to mix into our wardrobes. If you already haven’t started working with plaids, you’d better start now. Think less Buffalo and more Kurt Cobain.
