Now Trending: The Polka Dot

Looks from Marc Jacobs F/W 11

It’s no secret that I’m a fool for polka dots. Big, small, black, white – I’ll take ’em any way they come. For this reason, I was pleased to see so many designers interpreting polka dots in new ways for their collections for F/W 11. Stella McCartney stuck black and white polka dots on sheer panels as a playful exploration of transparency, while  Jacobs covered his collection in small, black polka dots to give it a dose of levity.

The polka dot patterns from McCartney and Jacobs have trickled to the street. Face Hunter, Street Peeper and The Sartorialist have recently captured the phenomenon in Beirut, Helsinki, Tokyo, and Stockholm.

The trend is mostly circulating in womenswear, but I’m crossing my fingers that retailers will amp up the polka dot factor for men. Afterall, my wardrobe could use a kick.

ADDENDUM:

I just came across this video campain for Diane von Furstenberg’s F/W 11 collection directed by Diane’s daughter, Tatiana. Among other looks, it features two very polka-dotty ones. Enjoy!
