Vichy skirt

How can one resist the charm of classic gingham fabric: be it adorable children wear, irresistible swinging sixties dresses or chic American sports classics pieces? After the iconic vichy dress of Brigitte Bardot who popularized this fabric in the 60s, the designers keep coming back to these bright plaids. For a few seasons now this once utilitarian pattern turns any piece into of a statement in both summer and winter collections.

Last summer this vichy skirt made a bright yet an easy-to-wear   addition to my wardrobe . 

The 3 m cut of cotton from the French brand Gerard Darel was a great find at the market of Fontainebleau a couple of years ago. With the rise of sport chic trend in fashion and following my passion for everything tennis (the sport itself and its esthetics), I decided to turn it into a pleated skirt.
