Black and white check called „pied-de-poule” is one of the most famous patterns in fashion world. It's history began in III b.c in Scandinavia where the black and white check was made for the first time. From popular tweed in Scotland into graphic design on Miss Dior perfume in 1947 „pied-de-poule” became a symbol of luxury. In the 60’s check print was coloured by Geoffrey Beene (lilac, green and carmel) to give a new, fresh look.
   „Pied-de-poule” was Coco Chanel's favourite pattern. She used it on dresses, skirts, jackets and coats. Check print appeared also in Alexander McQueen’s collections styled for women and for men, mostly in black and deep red combination. McQueen’s fashion designers created  timeless collection of oversized chic clothing and gave a sporty, casual look to elegant kilt.
