    Is There Such Thing As Too Loud?

    Plaid taking part in another trend, bold, eye-catching, loud prints and patterns have become repetitive across many designer mood boards and then portrayed in autumn/winter collections as seen in the designs of Edward Crutchley, Craig Green, Palm Angels And Fendi to name a few. “Too loud” has become overshadowed and embraced and more importantly worked perfectly this season.
