Fashion-lexicon point: what is the houndstooth pattern?
The houndstooth pattern, “houndstooth” in English, is a pattern created by alternating strips of four light threads and four dark threads on a loom. The alternation of these bands creates the four-pointed houndstooth pattern. If the pattern is maxi, we speak of houndstooth.
The houndstooth has long been reserved for the upper middle class, but we now see it on all styles: rock, preppy, retro, chic-casual, neo-bourgeois…
Anyone can make the houndstooth trend their own.
