Pleated skirt – a symbol of frivolous, sexy 60s, is inseparable from the cult film "the seven year Itch" with Marilyn Monroe. But then fashion has hit the Bohemian era of the ' 70s – jeans-bottoms and colorful shirts. But the sexual revolution of the 80s showed the world extreme mini, finally pushing the skirt is pleated into the shadows. But fashion is cyclical – once a forgotten, folded silhouette has now become the dominant motif of the spring haute couture collections.

The updated plish shines with a golden metallic in Gucci's rulers, captivates with iridescent flashes at Mary Katrantzou, gently streams, emphasizing curves and forms, on Christopher Kane models, gracefully falling in chiffon folds in the collections of Oscar de la Renta. Pleating is not up to the rules and conventions - organza, silk, velvet patterns on acrylic fabrics and geometric patterns on cotton - it can cope with any whims. For accessories, the pleated skirt is also tolerated more than ever - this season it can be combined with shirts, straight jackets, loose blouses and even bulky pullovers.
