Autumn 2021 Trend: Harlequin Diamond Checks
We are so excited to see a fresh interpretation of classic check prints. Only recently fashion people were buzzing about checkerboard pieces à la The Queen's Gambit. But London's designers are switching the game and playing with the diamonds of a pack of cards instead — or the playful diamond-patterned costume of the Harlequin jester.
At London Fashion Week February 2021, Fashion East up-and-comer Maximilian showed us how to wear the diamond print with confidence, Next In Fashion's Daniel w. Fletcher's first womenswear collection made sure the Harlequin pattern got the special treatment it deserves, and Vivienne Westwood also interpreted the diamond check in a minty green colourway.
