Prints- Maxed Out

Maxi skirts are a must-have item for Spring and we are excited that there are some booming trends in prints associated with it!

Here are the most popular so far- Over-sized vintage florals for the daring, mini florals for feminine appeal, and stripes for the casual. The elongated silhouette allows for great allover patterns, so theres room to play!

Inspiration – Fantastic Fatalism

As visually stimulated people, we couldn’t help but be inspired by Heyniek, a graduate from the Design Academy of Eindhoven. His mood boards and illustrations for his collection, “Fantastic Fatalism” are breathtakingly creative! We love how imaginative and eclectic his eye is for putting together some intense patterns and colors!

Trending – Tribin’ Times

We all know that African tribal-wear is trending hard, but have you ever really looked into exactly what factors may have contributed in making this a trend to start with?

Meet 3 influential photographers that drew us in….

Phyllis Galembo Photography

Phyllis Galembo is mostly known for her photographic documentation of native tribes. We were attracted to her most recent work of photographing West African tribes in ritual adornment for mainly religious purposes. Check out the fully bodied costumes composed of geometric patterns, stripes, and colorful zig zags.

Hans Silvester Photography

German photographer, Hans Silvester caught our attention with his beautiful and emotional work depicting the temporary bodily decoration by tribes in southern Ethiopia. The people of the Omo Valley, use flora and fauna to embellish their faces and body with perfectly composed color palettes and finger painted motifs that can easily inspire a fresh take on textile designs.

Herring & Herring Photography

The photographers at Herring & Herring focus on fashion photography, but we came across their Tribal shoot and we were instantly mesmerized by how they took the tribal concept to an extreme of colors and patterns. Amazing.

Trending – Peruvian Influence

We spotted it on the runways and the ethnic trend is now being picked up by everyday consumers…Peruvian style influence has taken over with its known attributes consisting of saturated colors, homespun textured woolens, and crafty geometric patterns.

The culture defines itself with an embellished and ornamental aesthetic where details become of the highest importance. What we would consider basics such as woven stripes are imperfectly paired with ancient folkloric motifs and meandering patterns. Peruvian culture effortlessly gives us tons to be inspired by whether its use of bold colors or its handmade textiles that we think deserve more appreciation!

Aaron Huey’s photographs for “The High Road to Machu Picchu” depict beautifully how this culture has the power to influence us.

Trending – Retro 70′s

It’s no secret that 70’s is going to be a major hit for S/S 2011. During Fashion Week NY and Milan, designers have shown a particular interest in going retro by using unique colorwayssilhouettes, and accessories in defining the groovy decade.

We searched through our archives and found a vintage issue of Vogue dating back to 1970! Check out this spread we found featuring a strong focus on bold and graphic prints of the time. We love the cartoon aspect and bright colors! This time period has a lot to offer for fresh new takes in prints, graphics and cool motifs.
