Put yourself on the spot
By Laura Craik, Evening Standard
21 July 2005

My sixth-form summer ball echoes in the memory for two things: bad flu and a rather bad dress. Unlike most of my schoolfriends, whose mothers bought theirs from Droopy & Brown, I decided to make my own.

I must have been watching too many Strawberry Switchblade videos, for the dress turned out to be half black with pink polka dots and half pink with black ones.

Since I couldn't actually find any polka dot fabric, I had to improvise, cutting the polka dots out of felt and then sticking them on with superglue. Nobody asked me to dance that night. Hardly surprising: I looked like a spotted dick.


Happily, I can dispense with the superglue this summer, because polka dots are very much back in fashion. This is mainly down to one man: Stefano Pilati, the newishly appointed designer at Yves Saint Laurent. It was a tough job stepping into Tom Ford's shoes, but Pilati's pretty polka dot collection definitely hit the, er, spot. His black-and-white pencil skirts, blouses and belted macs have been snapped up by everyone from American Vogue's Anna Wintour to Harpers & Queen's Sara Buys, who wore a YSL ensemble to the wedding of her future mother-in-law, Camilla Parker Bowles.

While black-and-white polka dots are a classic combination, this season there are plenty of opportunities to experiment. At Louis Vuitton, polka dots came in electricblue sequins on a shrunken cardie, which was then offset with floral prints. Mixing polka dots with florals is very modern, as is mixing them with gingham or stripes. For avant-garde polka dot items head to Dover Street market, where Comme des Garçons has beautifully draped shirts and skirts that are currently on discount.

The biggest danger with polka dots is looking too girlie. But while androgynous dressers or tomboys would sooner wear a hair shirt than anything spotty, you might find your opinions change according to the occasion.

Polka dots are great to pack for a holiday: spotted capri pants that might look fey in London will suddenly look fetching on the Med, while a polka dot bikini is a surefire winner on the beach. Fornarina (www.fornarina.com) has a cute one that will have you knocking spots off the competition, for sure.
