Last week's report focused on the tartan and plaid garments that are coming through in next season's collections. This week lets look at another Scottish staple, the kilt. Christopher Kane referenced his provincial Scottish Catholic upbringing in his autumn/winter 2010 collection ,by opening the show with a short sexy version of this tradtional skirt. Cut with a high waistband ,a flat front and swishy pleats fanning out at the back , this piece is a key silhouette for next winter. Danish designer, Peter Jensen was inspired by the story of Scottish schoolgirls in the 1930's for his last show. The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie novel and movie of the same name was the starting point for his autumn/winter collection. Pairing a grey mini kilt with a striped top and matching blazer, accessorised with cute ankle socks and heeled brogues, was Jensen's vamped up version of the fashions from the film.
