Resort 2014 Runway Trends: Typographic

Resort 2014 Runway Trends: Typographic

One quirky print trend that caught our attention from the Resort 2014 runway shows was the use of typography. Often executed in black and white for a more optical effect, we see how various compositions create positive and negative space, accentuating both geometric and organic shapes found in the letters and numbers.

29 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

29 Weeks: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places

So it’s been a few weeks since our last photograph. We try to dedicate a time slot every Sunday for these outings but some weekends are just too hectic to get it all done. So once again we stayed on the west side and found this cool wall at a bicycle shop in Venice Beach.

I’m wearing a vintage dress that I recently found at Shareen’s Vintage near downtown Los Angeles – that place is amazing. And so is the fruit cocktail print on this dress, which I appropriately wore to my picnic themed baby shower the week before. It’s only a shame I wasn’t able to maintain my watermelon slice manicure that I gave myself for the event… it was pretty sweet.

Come back next week for an update in our ongoing series: Patterns, Preggos & Painted Places.

Cute Fruit

Fun With Fruit: Print Trends via Aaryn West

We here at Aaryn West believe that we should all be incorporating more fresh fruit into both our diets and our print collections. And with the spring season upon us, we’ve noticed lots of cute fruit prints popping up around the web, particularly of the citrus and pineapple variety. We’ve dished up a few of our favorite examples, hope you enjoy!
