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 2015 Runway Trends: Folk Fairytale

Resort '15 Print Trends: Folk Fairytale via Aaryn West

Here’s a transitional print concept that spills over from Fall 2014, but with a lighter, more springlike color palette. One part floral, one part Ukrainian embroidery, with a dash of fairytale whimsy thrown in for good measure, these prints bring a fresh, bohemian take on a trend your Grandmother would likely adore. To keep things really authentic, make sure to include references to traditional embellishment techniques such as cross-stitch or beading.

Resort 2015 Runway Trends: Photographic Feathers

Resort '15 Print Trends: Photographic Feathers via Aaryn West

The Resort season always brings us a few trends with a tropical vibe, which is only natural as the name itself implies post-winter travels. This season, that tropical trend takes the form of brightly colored feathers, realistically rendered and arranged in neo-psychedelic fashion. Whether used alone or combined with floral elements or even other animal skins, you’ll be sure to end up with a unique group of prints that buyers will flock to.

Resort 2015 Runway Trends: Fractured Floral

Resort '15 Print Trends: Fractured Florals via Aaryn West

Floral prints are generally an important trend every season, they essentially never go away. The difference will be in how they are presented; what form they take on. With distressed textures being so relevant right now it’s only natural that one approach to take when creating your Resort ’15 floral collection is to give it the same distorted, scratchy feel. You may want to start out with a photographic or traditional botanical floral design, that way once you have applied your distress technique it will still be evident that there’s a floral design hidden underneath.

Moving right along in our series of posts highlighting the most important Resort 2015 runway trends, we have abstract, painterly brush stroke prints. Keeping the color palette minimal or subdued will give designs a more sophisticated feel to an otherwise youthful and chaotic trend.
