One of the fashion trends that has never set is the checkered texture, the famous Tartan of Scottish origin. Symbol of tradition, Tartan has come a long way, asserting itself on fashion catwalks and in street style.
Behind the success, there is the traditional Scottish garment, the kilt. It is a skirt, made with a wool fabric called tartan, where the striped patterns intersect forming a check pattern. Although the most famous are the green and blue tartan, in Scotland there are more than 5,000 variants, and each represents a Scottish aristocratic family, the so-called clan. In the 70s, the checkered texture makes its appearance in London, with the punk movement. The girls wear the red and black skirts-kilt over the ripped leggings. Dressing the legendary group the Sex Pistols, the designer Vivienne Westwood definitely consecrates the tartan as punk icon. Since that time, checkered texture has quickly become a cult and it has occurred over the years with different shades. All the fashion brands, sooner or later, end up proposing creations based on that texture.
For this FW16 collection, Volpi Mood presents different overcoats in Brown tartan, embellished with fur details, wearable on different occasions, from casual to elegant, from day to night.
