Fall ’15 Runway Trends: Boho Punk

Fall '15 Print Trends: Boho Punk via Aaryn West

With each Fall season we inevitably see a resurgence of plaid parading down the catwalk, often within the clean and crisp domain of menswear. This season we are seeing a more feminine, perhaps even free spirited, approach to plaid. Plaids are being juxtaposed against whimsical paisleys, sweetly naive florals, and in the case of Stella Jean’s brilliant collection, ornately detailed folkloric illustrations of animals. Think about inserting a does of grunge into your next bohemain collection, by way of the simple punky plaid.

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!

If you are a vintage print junkie then you might want to call your sponsor because you are going to want to overdose on Tucker‘s fall 2012 collection. I mean, wow. With a total of 84 unique looks to drool over, it was a little difficult picking my favorites. Riddled with retro looking geos and florals, cute conversationals, and even a dash of leopard; this collection really has it all.
