Style narratives don’t happen by accident. They are the children of design, of an urge to strive for something more than the current zeitgeist; or, on occasion, to comfort our overworked wardrobes with an omnipresent print once again in favour. And so it is with gingham. Hot on the heels of the likes of Derek Lam, Balmain and Delpozo, the high street is finally taking the next step away from tartan and slowly segueing towards gingham. Forget those Little house on the Prairie connotations; turn a blind eye to any Wizard loving Kansas girl jibes. This Spring, gingham is a major game changer- get involved.
