A matter of debate, which came first, Queen or the cardigan trend? Perhaps Her Majesty has been taking her cue, as she was spotted this week in two new cardigans worn with classic tartan kilts at the Balmoral Castle.
Well, the cardigans are now, no longer reserved for ‘grannies’ only. Everyone will, undoubtedly, be aware of it, thanks to Christopher Kane, Gucci and Prada. They have all re-designed the knitwear staple in cool new and updated incarnations for this autumn.
HONORING THE QUEEN.
There were reports that Stella McCartney and Mulberry designer, Johnny Coca have both openly hailed Queen Elizabeth to be their honourable guest when they presented their collections back in February.

McCartney specifically and precisely riffed off of Queen Elizabeth’s Balmoral wardrobe. It was the silk headscarves, quilted raincoats and heritage checks included.
The cardigan trend, though, is indeed a stand-out art of fashion that has staying-power into next the season. Erdem Moralıoğlu was the loudest and proudest in declaring his honest love for the crown at the London Fashion Week.
He presented a spring collection inspired by The Queen of Great Britain’s look in the early 1950s. Those beloved and fascinating argyle cardigans were twisted over the top of ballgowns. He was also seen saying: “taking that formality and turning it on its head”.
