Book your tickets for 2013 – we feel like we’re ready for the resort! We’ve been inspired by the looks from the Resort 2013 runway and we have the checklist for the print trends we spotted. Gather your best animal, floral, stripes, and geometric patterns and throw them together for a great mixed print! Also you can don some refreshing conversational prints, especially nautical and cute bows and other unexpected motifs! Don’t forget about playful abstract and watercolor floral prints, too. It looks like in 2013 you can still relax while being bold!
You don’t have to get your eyes checked – we’re seeing spots, too! We’re inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s art collaboration: ‘Infinity Dots Collection‘ for Louis Vuitton. Kusama is well known for her flowing and rhythmic polka dot patterns which seems perfect for fashion! This collaboration is a continuation of the idea of pairing art and fashion for the Louis Vuitton label. The first part of the collection will be available in stores July 11th which is a day before a retrospective of Kusama’s work at the Whitney Museum here in New York.

Paisley is a big trend this spring as we noticed them popping up in a lot of S/S12 shows like Stella McCartney, Jil Sander, and AW Anderson. Big or small scale, this print is showcased in a number of silhouettes from dresses to blazers to shorts. Did you know when you download a print from EzTextiles you can fill it into your own sketch?
