Look into your dad’s closet and you’re more likely to get introduced to the rigid and ribbed fabric we call corduroy. But if you’ve recently visited your favourite H&M and Zara outlet, you would have noticed the stacks of corduroy suits, jackets, pants and skirts filling the shelves. The traditionally low key fabric has grabbed the spotlight by the neck and is dominating the Autumn/Winter scene in all its ribbed glory. Ushered in by brands like Ermanno Scervino and Marc Jacobs, the corduroy trend is being touted as one winter staple you will need, and yes want!
