I guess houndstooth checks and glen plaids are never out of fashion, but seeing checks and plaids on practically everything in Ferragamo’s Fifth Avenue store made me think of Versace from a few years back.
I think it was about 2004 or 2005 when Versace had a big plaid moment that so entranced me that I got a pair of pants AND a dress in the same pattern.
After I saw the new Ferragamo pieces, I briefly imagined myself wearing my old Versace dress over the matching pants, and then adding the Ferragamo coat, bag and shoes. I’d definitely look mad, plaid and dangerous to know! But I bet Bill Cunningham would love it.
UPDATED AUG. 1, 2011, TO ADD: I’m sure it’s a case of “great minds think alike” but let’s all pretend that Lady Gaga read this post and it inspired this Ferragamo-houndstooth-overdose outfit!
