What was once the uniform of Sixties counterculture and a staple for deadheads the world over, has now gone on to headline the catwalks as this season's most unlikely denim trend? It’s had a contemporary rework, of course.

From Stella McCartney’s trend-friendly spectrum of blues to MSGM’s soft-hued approach and R13’s streetwise handling, this was tie-dye for grown-ups.
