I have noticed that prints are huge this upcoming spring/
summer season. Although prints are always used, this seasons particular prints are small and repetitive. There are prints such as reptile markings that hold some very subtle color as well as hints of citrus. Miniature dots are also very popular but have a very sophisticated look to them. Used in feminine suits and dresses, there effects carry a classic appeal. Some designers used evenly placed dots and some were irregular splotches. Diamond repetition brings a lot of energy to spring. There is a variety of colors as well as knitted versions and jacquard’s. Flat geometric shapes from the 60′s and 70′s drive the vintage inspiration. Another shape used is the tile. Forming exotic mosaics or architectural grilles, honey combs and hexagons are the new patterns suggested for spring. Last but not least, every season brings a garden. Packed floral are both illustrated and printed. This is my least favorite of the new prints because it is too busy. I am excited to see what this spring brings to us on the streets.
