I’ve been crazy for gingham lately, and I’m not alone. Take Isaac Mizrahi. As he told us at his Resort presentation, gingham “is like a solid with a lot of personality.” The usual country red and royal blue ginghams have their place, but they don’t feel as fresh to me as the soft, floaty grays (and their near cousins, washed-out blacks and even watery blues) that have been cropping up everywhere, from street-style blogs to runways. There’s something so much more ethereal about the silvery tones, almost neutral; they’ll transition seamlessly from summer sun to the fall wardrobe. I love how Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s Christine Centenera pairs her gray gingham skirt with nude colors, or how the models Tommy Ton captures throw it on over whatever they’re wearing (pictured). Karl showed some lovely gingham looks at Chanel’s big Resort bash in Saint-Tropez, too, and Eva Mendes is a fan—she wore Dior’s version to the premiere of her movie The Other Guys in Cancún.

After a season or two of hard-rocking eighties styles, the Spring runways brought a little relief: Things got cute again. As if summoned from the upper reaches of adorable, suddenly cats sprung up everywhere, from Miuccia’s kitty prints to Vanessa Seward’s claw-slashed sheaths at Azzaro. But Japanese-born designer Tsumori Chisato has been preaching to the cult of cute for years. We love her critter wallet, which picks up the kawaii vibe without going full-on Fruit.
