Houndstooth designs have been a recurring theme in fashion from the 1950s onwards. Most often represented in classic black and white, historically woven in wool yarns and derived from the traditional shepherd's check.
Sapphire & Jet Houndstooth, as the name suggests, is a rich royal blue teamed with a deep dark black both classic and iconic in equal measures.
This iconic design can now be woven, printed and made up in various colours, yarn types, fabrics and compositions. Sapphire & Jet's classic theme offers reassurance, providing wardrobe longevity. Icons through time from Audrey Hepburn to Princess Diana and Beyoncé have been snapped in this everlasting trend.
Those who remember the power-dressing '80s with nostalgia will love Sapphire & Jet. The classic navy and black combination can be styled in a multitude of ways thanks to the versatile fabric boasting a stable hand with a light texture (almost like a brushed medium dress crepe) and a reassuringly weighty, soft drape quality.
Sapphire & Jet will make superb jackets and blazers - add a black velvet collar and pocket flaps for a super-smart style. Team with faux leather for a very retro '80s vibe. Create matching pencil skirts, A-line and pleated skirts, and neat pinafores and shift dresses.
Slim and sharp-cut trousers will sit perfectly with your matching blazers, for a softer more feminine style create cropped French couture style jackets with velvet ribbon trims. Utilise the soft drape of this cosy houndstooth and fashion yourself simple tunic style dresses to wear with thick tights or leggings- look to pattern companies like - The Assembly Line Patterns, Merchant & Mills and The Makers Atelier. for styles with clean simple lines.
