I am not Scottish

I am not Scottish but I love tartan pattern and I follow closely
always entertaining and refined.

While recently in Milan I was walking one day by La Rinascente, the city's main department store, and I saw the most beautiful windows display, all about Christian Dior Fall 2011 and all about tartan. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me and I went back two days later, with the purpose of sending pictures to Scot but…the windows were changed already.
(Did you know that Giorgio Armani started his career as a window dresser? And coincidentally just for La Rinascente!)



I cannot show you the gorgeous window display in Milan so I found these equally gorgeous images  from Style website (and courtesy of Christian Dior);  they say about the Dior pre-fall collection “A Scottish hunting theme opened with forties-inspired tartan skirt suits in eccentric colors such as lavender and sage, trimmed (or not) with fur (…)” I find this collection very appealing, what do you think?

As for me…I am Italian and I love tartan!

Oh yes! Yes! Yes! I love tartans and plaids! I think not seeing the original windows allows me to dream up some pretty fantastic images in my mind. The ones you posted are wonderful!
