You ain't nothin' but a Houndstooth


Wikipedia Definition: Houndstooth, houndstooth check or hound's tooth (and similar spellings) is a duotone textile pattern, characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes, often in black and white, although other colours are used.



Well, here are the news, this traditional scottish print is back and I think it'll probably be an important trend next AW season. You can already see it in loads of shops like Asos, Topshop and Mango.

But, what's new now is the fact that you no longer have to stick to the sobriety of black and white, you can use in many colours and mix it with other patterns...
