Fashion is constantly evolving from decade to decade and trends seem to always return with a new twist. Take, for example, Marc Jacobs’ spring/summer 2013 op art inspired collection for Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week with bold, colourful, chic checkered patterns and compare it to the elegant, classic, subtle fashionable checkered patterns of the 1950s. Year after year we always see new collections with a hint of inspiration from the past. I enjoy both sides of the spectrum and feel that I am inspired by both in different ways (whether it be the cuts or the prints). A mix of trends from the past to current trends, in my mind, is the ultimate fashion statement.
