New York fashion week: Tartan/Grid print trend

I recently did an AW13 trend post about red tartan and its increasing popularity, it was all over the AW13 catwalks back in January and sure enough is now extremely popular on the high street. I was, and still am, extremely excited to see whether catwalk designers have done a spring take on this trend or abandoned it altogether.

There were only a few designers at New York fashion week who used brightened up tartans in their collections(Richard Chai and A Detacher to name just a few). This being said there was an abundance of grid prints resembling tartans, possible move on?

Kaelen and L.A.M.B were my favourite grid print designers, both using large scale grid prints in striking black and white. It will be extremely interesting to see whether any of the British designers at London fashion week are advocating this tartan/grid pint trend.
