Spring 2015 Runway Trends: Mod Squad

Spring 2015 Runway Trends: Mod Squad via Aaryn West

One of our absolute favorite eras in textile design turned out to be a major theme on the runway this season; the groovin’ 60s and 70s. Today we’re featuring quirky geos that would give any Mod a good flashback. For additional examples of this hip trend, check out collections from Trina Turk and Orla Kiely.

Pashmina Love

Afghan Pashmina photo by Aaryn West

The wind has been howling non-stop so I decided to employ it’s help in showing off a gorgeous gift I received last week, from a friend located in Dubai. She said the bright colors and geometric pattern made her think of me, and now I’m the lucky owner of this ridiculously amazing, hand-made Afghan Pashmina. A million thank yous.

Michael Dotson:Inspiration Found

Paintings by Michael Dotson

A shout out to Booooooom for featuring an artist that really floats my boat, Michael Dotson. His paintings abound with bright, contrasting colors, geo shapes, print mixing, texture for days – and all presented in a semi-surreal, retro manner. That’s pretty much a recipe for awesome, right? Check out his website to see more of his work!
