The pleated skirt has exploded onto the market as a key piece, spotted on the catwalks and the streets of London and Milan. Updates for next season include splitting, splicing (as at Antonio Marras) and running pleats in all directions.
Pleats will move into new territories and feature on anything from leather to jerseywear and use contrasting textural mixes such as satin with matt. Updated pleats work on all product styles, from maxi dresses and mini tunics to culottes and blouses, or even on a high collar (see Andrew Gn), a sleeve or a hem.
