London Fashion Week Looks We Love: Richard Malone Reinventing The Stripe

It's not just about the horizontal stripe anymore.

We Love...

Stripes have been reinvented countless times - from interweaving them with flowers to rainbow colour-scapes - but now millennial designer Malone has given us a fresh way to wear this staple, and we love the optical illusions created by the unusual lines.

A quick DIY way to get this look at home is to wear layers of stripes all heading in different directions.

This works well when you layer different textures and types of stripe.
