Here at The Scotland Kilt Company we are passionate about highland fashion and tailoring and believe that a Harris Tweed jacket is an iconic piece of clothing that will remain in your wardrobe for a lifetime. Harris Tweed is a blend of proud British heritage and immaculate tailoring and stitching that is second to none. Harris Tweed has a prestigious place in fashion history and is still featured in Autumn runway collections today.
Where Was Harris Tweed Featured In Paris Fashion Week?
Strong tailoring was a noticeable trend at this year’s Paris Fashion Week and featured on the catwalks of Givenchy and Maison Martin Margiela. Margiela embraced British Heritage and incorporated Harris Tweed in their coats and jackets. Online blog Trend Hunter said the show featured “mannish tailoring and menswear fabrics that Margiela tweaks with its signature quirk. Classic houndstooth, Prince of Wales check and Harris Tweed are thrown in the mix, emerging as coats with cropped fronts, trailing backs and jackets.” The collection was considered to be more ‘wearable’ than Margiela’s past collections, but the inclusion of Harris Tweed added haute couture to the ready to wear collection. The blog continues “[Margiela’s tailoring is] prominently structured with couture-like shoulders and unfinished seams, even featuring humorous notes like a ‘Harris Tweed’ label worn like a prized logo on the outside of clothing.”* The playful use of the Harris Tweed logo sparked a buzz with many faces in the fashion industry; Nicole Phelps reported on Margiela’s Harris Tweed jacket “between the shoulder blades, the house’s familiar white cotton stitches were replaced with the iconic Harris Tweed logo.”* In The Margiela Fall Collection the Harris Tweed logo was almost worn like a badge of honour, showing that British Heritage is still a front runner in the fashion industry right now.
