We’re starting to see inklings of hope here in Paris, but globally this has been a caustic winter. The only foreseeable antidote being to over-indulge on picnics... at the beach, in the mountains, a park or a rooftop-- wherever you are picnics are in order this spring.  Designers decidedly felt this urge and the spring/summer 2015 runways were tousled with gingham, floral, lavender and off the shoulder tops, a.k.a. perfect picnic ensembles.

Throughout the world, nations claim the origins of gingham and all attribute different uses and meanings to the fabric. Though the word is believed to be derived from a Mylasian word, genggang, meaning striped, the Indonesians see gingham as a contrast between good and evil, the colors symbolizing this relationship. Perhaps it can symbolize the contrast between winter and spring and carry us right on through to sunny weather. So raise a glass, throw on some picnic-esque pieces and let’s hear it for the coming of spring.
