Houndstooth pattern » The fashion evergreen
The houndstooth pattern is a classic weaving technique whose origins can be traced back to 360 BC. Invented for aristocratic clans in Scotland, houndstooth was initially only found on kilts, and later on elegant garments for men. It was not until the late 1940s that Christian Dior designed the first houndstooth pattern for women. Since then, the pattern, which is reminiscent of small pinwheels in its weave, has been a perennial fashion favourite. Elegant, chic & wonderful to combine.

Houndstooth & Co.
Nowadays, three closely related weaving techniques are actually summarised under the name houndstooth pattern in fashion. The actual houndstooth, Vichy and Pepita. All three patterns are very similar and differ only slightly in the arrangement and continuation of the checks in verticals or diagonals. What they all have in common is their classic attitude. Houndstooth always looks very elegant, especially in its traditional black and white version in bouclé or wool. If you want to give the look a little more lightness, choose light printed fabrics with a houndstooth pattern instead of the woven version and work with style breaks such as trainers, leather or bright colours. At Ana Alcazar, we love the classic houndstooth look. It's an evergreen and can be worn for many, many years.
