Earlier this year I had the great pleasure of working very closely with an up-and-coming Women’s line based out of Texas, Hi! Expectation. Tasked with the job of creating prints for their Spring 2013 collection, I worked hand in hand with their design director to ensure the artwork suited their colorful and eclectic vibe. The lookbook had too many styles to post, so here are a handful of my favorites from this season, which are due out in stores early next year. For more information about Hi! Expectation, giddyup, mosey or shuffle on over to their website and facebook page.
The spring shows were absolutely full of lace, which proved to be one of the most commonly utilized textural trends. While there was a strong feminine tilt to many of the collections, we saw lace utilized in both traditional and modern ways. Grandmothers everywhere would approve.
Here at Aaryn West, we love us some colorfully abstract painty palettes. Up and down, side to side, or just all over; there’s no wrong way to go about this amazing trend.
