WGSN expects contrast sleeves and fabric combinations and the heritage trend to converge for AW 11/12 in a movement we are calling Cubist Heritage.
This new approach to heritage dressing combines traditional estate tweeds in patches and panels placed with geometric precision to create graphic blocks of pattern and colour.
Catwalk inspiration comes from the pre-fall collections of Céline and Maison Martin Margiela, which championed a modernist look.
The silhouette is top-heavy, ‘teddy boy’ style, with long and lean jackets paired with slim flat-fronted pants.
But contrasting panels also work well on shift dresses, T tops, shirts and wrap skirts. Expect to see contrasting panels of traditional Scottish estate tweeds, such as lovat, Glenurquhart brushed wools and Harris tweed,
as well as Prince of Wales checks or contrasting colourways of the same tweed or check.
