MBFWA 2018 trend report: Check prints

Posted: 15 May 2018 3:45 pm

Fashion Week Australia shows us the biggest trends about to drop, and this one is going to be huge.

If there is one trend we've seen walking its way through the runway as well as strutting its stuff on the street, it's the check print.

This print can be transformed in a number of ways and is probably why designers are absolutely living for it this season! We first saw it at the Camilla and Marc show on Day 1 of fashion week and it's been popping up ever since!

Camilla and Marc: Check prints

Obviously, we have to start with Camilla and Marc. These guys kicked off the week with their show on Day 1 and it's fair to say they absolutely killed it. The check print was a strong feature in the show, and they kept it pretty neutral. Each check print featured nude tones, yet they all looked very different. The print was worked into an array of power suit looks that are incredibly popular this year!

SWIM Showcase: Check prints

The swim showcase saw a collection of swimsuits in check print. These were not only in black or neutrals but also in fun pops of colour like this pink! It definitely looked along the lines of a gingham check print but either way we were living for these looks! They were just subtle enough to not be overbearing for a swimsuit but easily eye-catching.

Bianca Spencer: Check print

Bianca Spencer definitely took the more classic approach to the check print. This trend took off due to the number of people wearing the check grey blazer. Bianca Spencer took this and made it her own with this low-back power suit that's all business in the front and all party in the back. We love this check print's colour, which if you look closely has very pale lines of pink that look perfect with the grey.

Thomas Puttick: Check print

This blazer dress ensemble was definitely a standout from the Thomas Puttick show. It features an incredible take on the check-print trend with the navy tones and blended lines. The blazer dress is definitely something we were seeing a fair bit this week and with looks like this from Thomas Puttick, we don't think it's going anywhere. The absence of pants or a matching skirt means that the print isn't overbearing and would be perfect for those who want to dip their toes into trying the pattern!

Blair Archibald: Check print

Blair Archibald's show had some amazingly daring and interesting looks. We loved the presence of both male and female models but even more, we loved the use of the check print in his shows. The check pants presented a new look for the print as there evidently is no blazer. Pairing it with a white muscle singlet and a chain gave it a grunge look that's totally wearable!
