If you can see past all the leopard print pieces on the high street right now, you will notice that corduroy fashion is also back in the game!
Taking cues from the 70s, the rigged fabric was given a trendy makeover and now it can be found in a plethora of shapes, colours as well as styles.
Even though it used to be referred to as “a poor man’s velvet,” corduroy is, in essence, a ridged form of velvet. The soft but also durable fabric first became popular in England and France in the 1700s. Some suggest it was named “corde du roi” which means “cord of the king”. However, since the fabric was used to make clothing for royal servants, others believe this (false) etymology was made up by a British manufacturer who hoped to glamorise the material.
In the 70s, Gianni Versace released a line of men’s clothing in corduroy. Fast forward to autumn/winter 2017 fashion shows, multiple influential brands including Marc Jacobs, Prada and also Mulberry incorporated this trend into their collections. And now, the popular material can be found in many high street stores in Aberdeen.
