Prints

Remember?





plaid/tartan - for some time past, the plaid has consistently been on everyone’s lists of fashion trends. You really cannot go wrong with one of these in your wardrobe. So traditonally and cozy for every time... If you are a bold person let it pair with floral or striped things!
designers: Vivienne Westwood, Ralph Lauren, L.A.M.B., Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Burberry

floral - The florals will always evoke femininity, in black and white or in vibrant technicolor. Do not consider it...granny. Many opportunities reside in the flowery prints. The fashion designers continually reinterpret the floral. That's true at most fashion houses exception the compulsive minimalists.

polka dots - Polka dots things can be fun and flirty. The tiny dots the classic effect is served. It gains especially wide space at the stockings in this year. If you prefer something a little bolder, choose the bigger version of dots. The bigger the pattern, the bigger a statement you will be making.

Designers: Moschino, Miu Miu

striped - Delicate horizontal stripes smack of the nautical trend, whilst vertical pinstripes are the domain of the office. The classic sailor-style requires a striped top (so Coco) and when paired with classy pants, you can never go wrong. However, chunky, ferocious looking stripes are having a fashion moment. The big benefit of vertical stripes give an elongated look to your body. Diagonal stripes have the same effect.
Some fashion house uses this print with predilection: Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Missoni...

zig zag - The zig zag print mixes and matches well with casual colour. This a wonderful way to add a little sophistication to any outfit!
Great representative of zig zag is Missoni, of course.

houndstooth - Houndstooth never goes out of fashion. This special plaid pattern is most commonly found in black and white, but can also look really chic and modern in color. That will become a classic in your closet.
Its current fan though - Alexander McQueen

op-art (optical art) - Fashion Designers picked up these art trends and modified them for use in their clothing designs in 1964. Courreges was influenced by the Op-art movement, that is not the "pop art". Op art was the optical trick of contrasting areas of line and colour.
The timely of op-art followers: Eley Kishomoto, Marimekko, Pucci.

animal - The animal prints got a big role for new one since the last year - Remember for example the 08 F/W of Balmain collection - but be careful with it. Don't overdo animal prints! Make a choice rather simple pieces to this for example the black pencil skirt/pants.
Designers - Cavalli, Christian Louboutin, Dolce & Gabbana...

paisley - First of all if you are not a big fan of the boho or gypsy look you have to forget the paisley print. A very popular print on all sorts of clothing and fashion accessories during the 60's. Its origin can be traced back to India. Add to any jeans/denim clothes and you may not make a mistake. Some fashion designers regularly incorporate paisley print into their leather handbags and silk clothes, especially at the last summer trend in Dolce & Gabbana it appeared as scarf print. For example: Anna Sui, Etro, Matthew Williamson...
