It’s a trend very easy to be copied! You only need a hint of humor, a lot of nerve and a blanket or a plaid or something like this. You keep the blanket, you drape in a casual way and that’s all. It’s very practical for everybody going to work by train in the morning: it shelters from the fog, arouses nice nighttime sensations, protects from inappropriate and chatty travel companions.
I don’t exactly know how this affair began, but it’s sure that Kenzo pushed it by distributing a certain number of blankets for his fashion shows during past fashion week! There are more masculine versions, like the brown here below and more colored ones (love so much Susie Lau!).
The coolest one is from Louis Vuitton:
And there also the most classical ones: checkered or with geometrical patterns:
And the crochet hook blankets too!
A special mention goes to Jean Charles de Castelbajac, who always used classical plaids (almost Tistrand) in his collections. Here are three different ways to wear them picked from his fall winter 2014 collection.
So the only thing to do is to chose the plaid matching to your personality and to drape it at the best.
I like very much this double-faced blanket from Zara!
What’s your favorite blanket?
