Houndstooth - inspiration post

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

In Italy it is called "pied-de-poule", ie chicken foot. In English, it is called "houndstooth". But regardless of the animal with which we identify it, this fabric, created by the intersection of vertical and horizontal threads, usually in black and white, is a universal symbol of class and elegance. Originally from Scotland, it was consecrated in the 50s by Christian Dior, but still very popular on todaty's runways  thanks to Ferragamo Marni, DKNY, Paul Smith, Iceberg and many other great designers. Yesterday I showed you an outfit with houndstooth accessories, today I want to give you a little inspiration with images I found on the web ... and please do not imitate Lady Gaga!

In Italia è chiamato “pied-de-poule”, ossia piede di gallina. In inglese, è detto “houndstooth”, letteralmente denti di segugio. Ma a prescindere dall’animale con cui vogliamo identificarlo, questo tessuto, nato dall’incrocio di filati verticali e orizzontanli, solitamente in bianco e nero, è un simbolo universale di classe ed eleganza. Originario della Scozia, viene consacrato negli anni'50 da Christian Dior, ma ancora oggi spopola sulle passerelle, da Ferragamo a Marni, passando per DKNY, Paul Smith, Iceberg e molti altri grandi stilisti.
Ieri vi ho mostrato un outfit con accessori pied-de-poule, oggi voglio darvi un po’ di ispirazione con foto trovate sul web… e mi raccomando non imitate Lady Gaga!
