Very few trends gain the universal stamp of approval from both the fashion crowd and the masses. Remember the polarising harem pants? But alas, this season's stand out trend is a fabric that has stood the test of time; the Prince of Wales check. Nicknamed after the Prince of Wales who famously popularised the check, consider this a piece of British heritage at it's best.
Originally a men's suiting fabric, the Prince of Wales check has made several appearances in women's wardrobes over the years and thanks to the latest runways, editorials and street style looks, power dressing is back. This time, the revival of the Prince of Wales check takes a more relaxed approach to suiting. Adapting to the modern woman, complimenting her femininity with her strength.

At KITRI, our designers' main focus was perfecting the balance between inspiration and innovation. Taking the retro references and updating them to suit the modern KITRI woman, creating pieces she can interpret to her own aesthetic. Think dramatic built-in neck scarves, the perfect double-breasted jacket, and exaggerated flares. Our take on relaxed tailoring elevates this budding trend from its masculine and corporate connotations to chic and easy-to-wear pieces. Consider these must-have items for autumn!
