Fall ’15 Print Trends: Mixed Menswear via Aaryn West

Fall '15 Print Trends: Mixed Menswear via Aaryn West

There seems to be something invariably more masculine about Fall prints than in the Springtime. This patchwork mash-up of traditional menswear motifs is the perfect example of that notion. Staying within a limited color palette and keeping your print elements small will allow for maximum harmony in this mixed print trend.

Fall ’15 Runway Trends: Geometric Stripes

Fall '15 Print Trends: Geometric Stripes via Aaryn West

Clean geometric shapes are carefully arranged and layered in these densely packed stripes for Fall 2015. While it may sound a little generic at first, we find it to be quite a versatile trend. Throw a few Moroccan or African elements in for a tribal feel, or take a more optical approach for a Memphis vibe. You could even have it merchandise with your 70’s group by adding in a simple and clean daisy shape to one of rows in your stripe.

Fall ’15 Runway Trends: Nouveau Floral

Fall '15 Print Trends: Nouveau Floral via Aaryn West

Take a more simplified approach to your Fall floral designs, as seen here with these stylized Art Nouveau inspired motifs. One delicately detailed flower is repeated throughout the design in a simple, yet compact, layout, which keeps the eyes moving but doesn’t overwhelm the viewer. We actually see it as a subset of a larger Fall 2015 trend rooted in Interior Design, which we’ll explore further a little later on in our review of Fall collections.

Fall '15 Print Trends: Black and White Optics via Aaryn West

Here’s a trend that is guaranteed to put you in a groovy mood. Graphic, eye-popping prints in stark shades of black and white evoke a complex mixture of playful and serious, and can often be a challenge to create; the trick is to find the perfect combination of scale and level of detail. Such dazzling optical prints were spotted in various Fall 2015 collections, with examples coming from Trina Turk, Protagonist, and Custo Barcelona in addition to the designers credited below.
