Strolling through Brooklyn on a sunny Sunday afternoon in November, I realized I had to do this blog post: Nearly every second person – or so it felt – was wearing either a scarf, pants, jacket or carrying a bag in tartan. It was almost a bit overwhelming. Using tartan and especially the Maasai print in collections was done before in 2011 and 2013, but here we go again. Personally, I really like the Maasai shukas. I just got one in red & blue from the Urban Maasai and I am working on making a skirt and scarf out of it.

How do you like it – are you rocking Maasai prints /tartan/plaid yet?
