IMPRINTED

PRINTS2

From baroque inspired geometry to kaleidoscope tilling, silhouette foliage to humming birds, Spring/ Summer 2013 is looking more creative than ever.

Take Thakoon‘s collection for instance; refreshing brocade florals mixed with contrasting blocked color palettes all injected on a variety of  fabrics.  While Stella Jean‘s collection offers nuances of coordinated traditional African inspired prints which struck that balance by combining Hawaiian prints with boyish charms.  It certainly looks like prints are here to stay for yet another season (and into 2014 I predict).

I must say that this year, I fell in love with Peter Pilloto; even the runway on which the collection was showcased looked fit to be eaten!  Issa London‘s whimsical twist  was dreamy and delicate, filled with buoyant chiffon and satin dresses. Spring / Summer 2013 is a testimony to designers, who once again, have successfully managed  to incorporate vibrant, outlandish, contrasting statement  patterns onto their fabric designs so effortlessly in order to offer consumers something original and unique with that all important touch of personality which I love.

And so without further ado,  here is my edit of top print trends to emerge on the catwalk for Spring/ Summer 2013.

    Are the runway models always so god awful thin and pasty white?

  2. lol Lorraine you made me laugh. It is industry etiquette but I reckon you and I could kidnap a couple of them and feed then chocolate and pies as punishment for an entire weekend 🙂

    Add in a few hours in the sunshine (with the appropriate sunscreen of course) and throw in a few hamburgers (or fish filet for the non meat eaters) for protein and we will have converted them to ….the normal size!

    BTW I love the colors and the mixed match patterns, especially in that first photo.

    How does one change industry etiquette—women world wide unite and redefine what beauty really is!

    1. you made my evening for sure, cannot stop laughing. As for the industry, I think it is a long road. Mind you check out Italian designer Elena Miro she caters for ‘normal size’ and her collection is gorgeous. Here is a link to the collection >> https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=588707244488637&set=a.552193414806687.161463.252208678138497&type=3&theater
