We start our extensive review of Spring 2015 runway print trends with a sweet take on the traditional spring floral. Infused with light and a touch of blur, these airy ombre fades add just enough of a modern twist to a look that never goes out of style. Be sure to check out the new collections from Carolina Herrera and Monique Lhuillier for additional examples of how to approach this trend.

Spring 2012 Trends: Ombre

Sonia Rykiel Spring 2012 Ombre

Among the print trends from the Spring 2012 runway shows, the use of ombre´ colors, or gradients, was one of my favorites. There were far too many to picture below, so I focused on a few examples that I thought were especially innovative. It’s great to see how designers are utilizing this colorful technique in such diverse ways, too, ranging from subtle and simple (Saunders, Wauchob) to bold and complex (Etro). A little something for everyone.
