Houndstooth, the right pattern for this season

Fall and winter fashions are in a checkered vibe, and favour patterns once worn by our grand-mothers and long gone from our closets. Along with patterns such as tartan or Prince of Wales check, the houndstooth check from Scotland is a key piece this year…


Clothes, shoes, accessories and even decoration: the famous black and white pattern is everywhere.



The houndstooth check,
an emblem of luxury and chic

Thanks to couture houses which used houndstooth fabric to make their garments and which made it fashionable in the 50s, it was long associated to luxury and chic outfits, but also to bourgeoisie in general.



Despite its success, the houndstooth check was ignored by the succeeding generations who preferred a more minimalist or less conservative type of fashion.



It is now revisited by the same fashion houses as well as the most daring designers and appears on both classic and modern outfits, in a more rock or even glamour trend. A pattern which does not go out of style, since it has been used the world over.

SAINT HONORE PARIS takes this trend on and adorns its Opera Twist watch with an elegant houndstooth pattern strap. A successful combination for this watch creation which draws inspiration from the fashion world and which embraces a trendy style with its double loop strap.



Each season, SAINT HONORE offers a new color palette for its interchangeable wrap-around straps… Orange, brown, khaki, blue, black, golden or even houndstooth or python patterns, the brand plays with colors and turns to the fashion world to find the trendiest fabrics.



The famous black and white pattern appeals with its original weaving, graphic structure and haute couture style. The houndstooth pattern strap now embodies the casual chic or the masculine-feminine styles, and many others…  Either for a laid-back or a professional setting, it is a great start when composing a look for this fall.
