Resort 2013 Recap: Postmodern Florals - Fashion Trends via Aaryn West

With the new Spring shows literally just around the corner, I’ve nearly missed the window of opportunity to gush about all the incredible print trends the Resort collections had to offer. Alas, the goodness shall not be wasted. I’ll be recapping my favorite trends over the next few days, starting with a set of florals that would be worthy of any local art gallery. Paired with bold stripes, fragmented, and tossed with artful, expressive brush strokes – these postmodern florals have a quirky sophistication.

aaryn west trends: keep it pixelated

Generally regarded as a sign of sloppiness and low quality [resolution] within the graphic industry, pixilated imagery appears to be pulling it’s weight as a respectable print motif these days. We’ve seen this trend jump from one surface to another in the world of surface design. In fact, it seems to be fairly well represented among fashion, interiors, fine art, and design categories one might mark as ‘other’. My jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw the Pixel Pumps from Mitsubai [pictured below].. I probably wouldn’t wear them much in real life, but I’m now considering planning my next Halloween costume solely around them.
