Geometry and Computation of Houndstooth (Pied-de-poule)
(Proceedings pages 299–306)
We apply a variety of geometric and computational tools to improve
our understanding of the Houndstooth (Pied de poule) pattern.
Although the pattern must have been known for centuries, it was
made famous mostly by Christian Dior and is still frequently used
in many variations. It is a non-exhaustible source of inspiration
for fashion designers.
