Resort 2015 Runway Trends: Cut It Out

Resort '15 Runway Trends: Cut It Out via Aaryn West

Today we bring you the final installation in our highlight of Resort 2015 runway print trends, which centers around the cut paper collages we’ve been seeing more and more of over the past few months. It’s a fantastic way to mix prints and show off your knowledge of other popular textile trends; think of it as the crazier version of the Block Party trend we highlighted last week. If this look is to over-the-top for your client base, simplify it by using prints with a smaller scale, and limiting the number of colors used in the overall design. For more examples of how to approach this collage inspired print concept, be sure to check out our pinterest board!

Resort 2015 Runway Trends: Fractured Floral

Resort '15 Print Trends: Fractured Florals via Aaryn West

Floral prints are generally an important trend every season, they essentially never go away. The difference will be in how they are presented; what form they take on. With distressed textures being so relevant right now it’s only natural that one approach to take when creating your Resort ’15 floral collection is to give it the same distorted, scratchy feel. You may want to start out with a photographic or traditional botanical floral design, that way once you have applied your distress technique it will still be evident that there’s a floral design hidden underneath.

Fall Floral Trends on Pattern Observer

Brushstrokes-of-Mystery-Aaryn-West

Back in June we were excited to see one of our prints used in Pattern Observer’s trend report for fall florals. Our ‘Space Mountain’ print is shown in the Brushstrokes of Mystery group, and to be visually paired with with awesomeness that is Erdem was the cherry on top. Our gratitude to Michele at Pattern Observer for the nod, and for sharing her knowledge of the surface design industry through her amazing blog.
