The diamond print is back in force on Instagram. And even Rihanna succumbs to the trend.
The argyle pattern may not tell you anything like that. Also named “Burlington” in reference to the American brand of the same name that appropriated this pattern for the manufacture of its famous socks, this print composed of diamonds or colored diamonds finds its hype of yesteryear this winter.
Having often had a bourgeois image because of its popularity on golfers’ polo shirts and BCBG looks of the 80s, the argyle pattern has often had its quarter of an hour of glory over time.
This year, the diamonds are back, and they’re more pop than ever. With bright colors, even fluorescent, the “grandfather” print is adorned with a good dose of modernity. On tops, dresses, sweaters with or without sleeves – a big trend that we have seen for a year already – or on cardigans or even on tights, the diamond is the pattern to appropriate this winter.
Tile lady or Harlequin way, the diamond is everywhere
Who better than Rihanna to mark the return of a trend?
The singer was spotted in Los Angeles this Sunday, November 7 wearing a full red look like a checkered lady with her bright red top with a diamond print signed Maximilian Davis. This young British designer presented his spring-summer 2022 collection, during London Fashion Week last September, in which he gave pride of place to the famous print. In neon red or sky blue, it is found on light dresses, tops, or in simple silver yoke around the size of a jumpsuit.
Arthur Arbesser has, meanwhile, taken over the diamonds in a multicolored way in his autumn-winter 2021-2022 collection. On shirts, pants, skirts, or turtleneck sweaters, the harlequin print is worn in all-over. On knitted pieces, such as a sleeveless sweater or a long cardigan, the diamond print is XXL and deformed but just as colorful. Enough to bring cheerfulness to our dressing room.
If you are nostalgic for the classic Burlington print, Simona Vanth offers a model of large wool gaiters in the thigh style with a well-known pattern, in blue, red, and pink colors. Originality guaranteed.
How to wear diamonds?
The colored diamond is easily worn on our favorite knitwear. Combined with jeans, clip-on pants, leatherette shorts, and a white shirt, the print brings color to our winter wardrobe while keeping a chic look. For a pop touch, we look at the Kitri Studio brand that unveiled “Harley Quinn chic” models. Cardigans, sweaters, dresses and even tights are adorned with large pink and red diamonds. The retro-pop print brand Cider has also released its orange diamond sleeveless sweater model with fuchsia and apple green ribbed edges. Glassworks London also offers argyle print for this winter: green, pink, and red cardigan, beige, white and an orange sweater or camel sleeveless sweater, blue and yellow… there is something for everyone.
If you are not yet ready to fully pass the course, you bet on the choice of the harlequin-like accessories of The Ragged Priest, including bags and bob, or on his denim shirt and jeans with a monochrome argyle pattern, certainly more discreet.
So to stand on trendy level checkered this winter, we bet on the diamond.
