The checks/plaids seen at New York really breathed life into how we look at summer checks. Either by hand painted expressions or trompe l'oeil they looked easy to wear and style with their variety of designs and colourways.

This season it isn't checks with florals in a grunge way, but checks making a statement by themselves in a cleaner way by scale and colour.

We've picked out our favourite collections that really show how fun checks can be. Be sure to take a look at our selection of printed check designs here at The Ministry of Pattern by using the Search toolbar.
