Resort 2015 Runway Trends: Paint Speckle

Resort 15 Runway Trends: Paint Speckle via Aaryn West

Pull out those paint brushes and prepare to get messy for the next trend featured in our review of Resort 2015 prints. Distressed textures are all the rave, and these ones are of the colorful variety. If this concept is too abstract for your normal customer, use it more sparingly as a texture in a stripe or geometric design.

Resort 2015 Runway Trends: Block Party

Resort '15 Runway Trends: Block Party

We are such big fans of this bold, colorful trend that has been going strong for well over a year. Traditionally, color blocking originates more from the side of fashion design and sewing construction rather than textiles, but there’s no reason you can’t incorporate this look into your print designs. It’s even a little like the collage / Matisse trend that’s been growing in popularity, although more simplified and dramatically enlarged. Be sure to check out the Resort collections from Missoni, Roland Mouret, and Prabal Gurung for additional examples on how to apply this look to your own designs.

Resort 2013: Vintage Florals

2013 Resort Trends: Vintage Florals

If you’re picking a destination for your 2013 Resort holiday, I highly suggest you follow the lead of these designers and take a trip back in time. Somewhere in the 60’s-70’s would be my choice. Vintage prints, colors and silhouettes are front and center in so many Resort collections that it had to be my first print report of the season. Below are a few of my favorite looks in this trend; I’m particularly loving the ones with bright, contrasting colors!
