For several centuries, a fabric of the Scottish regiments, today a uniform of today’s celebrity, still significant and symbolic by the royals. Tartan entered the history of fashion with Burberry and Vivienne Westwood. Still, the part of the everyday garment of the Highlands, it remains the symbol of the Scottish national identity, and its variants of color and fantasy represent the ancient clans of the country, each with his kilt. Before the fashion designers, it was the British Royals who sensed the stylistic potential of those colorful paintings: designed by Prince Albert in 1857 for his wife Queen Victoria, the “Tartan Balmoral” and still today exclusively used by the English rulers.But Kate Middleton has gone beyond the family pattern, and her green and blue coats worn on more than one occasion are by Miu Miu and Alexander McQueen. Yet, when it comes to fashion, the honorable mention goes to Lady Diana: her eighties and nineties look have transformed the masculine and age-old texture into a feminine-style that is still very fashionable.
