all about plaid

Just in case you've been living under a rock recently, the fashion industry is going mad for plaid this Fall/Winter 2013 season. And at the forefront of this madness is a look by none other than Alessandro Dell'Acqua forhis label, No. 21. The opening look of his Fall 2013 collection, which showed at Milan Fashion Week, was a plaid sweater over a plaid shirt, accompanied by a sparkling gold skirt with a massive slit up the side. Back then, perhaps nobody could really have predicted that it would be such a huge success, but we here at Electric sekki could feel it in our bones. We already showed you how Anna Wintour featured the look in one of the main editorials for her all-important September Vogue issue, and now it's popped up in spreads for Vogue China, Jalouse and CR Fashion Book, to name just a few! And we have a feeling that this is only just the beginning. We've simply got to get our hands on this look.
