Houndstooth. . . the woven wool of the Scottish Lowlands. Its metamorphosis is quite impressive, and this spring has brought an uncanny fixation on the traditional textile. Yes, you can always find this in Ethan Allen’s fabric library (though you will have to contact an upholstery professional to clean it).

More or less though, you will find houndstooth this season as a statement piece. In the Fall Ready-to-Wear runway shows, designers took a stab at it. The results?

You be the judge.

The Fall RTW Collection from Salvatore Ferragamo definitely made a statement in Milan. Some of the more subtle houndstooth uses came from Hervé Léger by Max Azria and Issey Miyake on the runways of NYC and Paris. Check it out…

Max and Lubov Azria kept it simple (left and center), but with a hint of the pattern. Dai Fujiwara, meanwhile played with the grey tones to make sure that the Miyake design (right) would stay true to the theme. The point?

Houndstooth is in, so make a statement.

If you dare, Bergdorf Goodman has (more like had since they sold out last week) this Italian-made Alexander Mcqueen sweater coat. Luckily, there are practical statements for everyone.


Elle Decor picked up on the trend and offered its readers numerous ways to incorporate houndstooth. From dinnerware by Marc Blackwell, to luggage by Heys (Neiman Marcus). Along with the camcorder by DXG, it is practicality at its finest. And because LoveSac always seems to know the way, statements of comfort can also be yours.

Our KidChairs (left) provide comfort for the little ones, and with a washable cover, who could say no? Luckily, the same washability and increased comfort comes in our Limited Edition SuperSac Package.

With a size of 6 feet, comfort has never looked so good…
