Check Mate

One of my favourite shows for Spring/Summer '13 came from the wonderful mind that is Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton. Boy does MJ know how to put on a good show. This time it was twin models walking two-by-two down the catwalk in an array of chessboard checks. A simple palette of lemon yellow, pastel green, nude, black and white adorned the beautiful models. It's a colour combination that I haven't really seen before but works well to give the perfect mix of classic and fresh. I am in love. 

If there is one thing I hate in life it's a kitten heel. While these Vuitton ones are quite cute I don't think this is a look I will be rocking this year. The 60's make up and beehive dos though are totally on my 'must try' list for 2013. 

If I had the money I would most definitely buy this nude checked playsuit. I love it. I don't know how much I would need to buy it  though as all of the mags are listing it as 'price on request' which, in my language, means 'fucking expensive'. 

Whilst I love the checks over at Vuitton I haven't really found anything similar that I am head over heels about on the high street. Therefore I am sticking to a little nail trend update with some simple checks. The weird lip smudge on the right-hand pic was supposed to indicate that I would wear monochrome checks with a red lip - obvs! 

What do you think of Vuitton's checks?

    1. Thanks! I haven't seen any other posts on checks either come to think of it. It's quite a hard trend to style so maybe bloggers are steering clear? Love your blog - I shall post a wee comment in a min :)
