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 2013: Skin City

Resort 2013 Recap: Skin City - Fashion Trends via Aaryn West

Animal prints continued to be a popular theme in many Resort collections, perhaps being used in even more adventurous ways than the previous Fall season. Stick to the basic skins [jungle cats, the occasional zebra] and update by using fun colors, or combining with pretty much any other type of print out there, with florals and baroque being among the most popular. Of course a classic skin is never a bad idea, either.

Aaryn West Monday Color Mood: Ruby Sea

In honor of the heat wave we’ve been enjoying here in Los Angeles (go on, hate us), here’s a color palette that starts off with a wash of icy cool, with a little pop of heat added in for spice. Hope everyone is off to a great week, wherever you may be!
