We all have seen season after season of flora’s being the dominant print for the balmy summer days. But 2013 seems to have a new entry under the sun. Checks are the new fantasy on the block. Giorgio Armani has used distorted check prints in colors of blue and sea green for his Spring-Summer 2013 collection where as Louis Vuitton has used geometric checks for its accessories and handbags in bold colors of red and yellow. The world of Fashion was awestruck by Italian floral prints last summer in the Dolce and Gabbana Spring –Summer 2012 collection. But this summer is going to be different. Even tartan checks are a big card in the deck. The Scottish school girl skirt in lighter fabrics of cotton and chiffon could be another hit.
