Color – Royal Blue

All around the world we’re hearing wedding bells, and EzTextiles wants to wish the very best to the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!

If you were one of the millions to rise early to see the event live, you probably noticed a lot of the guests were wearing shades of blue! Of course we swooned over Kate’s wedding dress itself, but we were really inspired by the vibrant Royal Blues that kept appearing over and over! We saw some great photos from the big event and had to share! Then we headed to our ever-growing library of prints and made a color story that looks and feels just as Royal! Using shades of the same color can be a great way to tie your collection together and allow you to get creative with the prints themselves.

Check out the rest of the royal blue inspired collection and see what else you can find in our library!

Menswear – The Flowerman

Who says men can’t wear floral prints?

The Rolling Stones made it acceptable for men in the mid 60s and 70s to wear florals, in fact it became a fashion statement! We think its time to bring it back now, especially that 70′s style is rolling back around for the Spring season as a major trend!

Dainty pretty florals need not apply here… Instead we foresee a more embellished vintage feel of foulard floral motifs, intricate decorative foliage and stamped flowers on mens shirtings!

Add a twist to your menswear line by exploring these vintage florals!

Prints – Tutti Frutti

Its all about fruits!

A major trend for Spring/Summer 2011 is a strong focus on all kinds of fruits, from apples to lemons even cherries! This kitschy conversational has made quite a buzz amongst editors, stylists and bloggers whom have expressed a liking to the trend. Find fruits in magazine shoots, trend boards- even American Vogues’ Anna Wintour was spotted wearing an all too familiar banana print!

We too love this ‘tutti frutti’ trend! Check out our concept board below using prints from our very own royalty-free Vintage Library!

Download these fruit patterns and more from the rest of the collection!

Prints – Tropicalia

Summer is right around the corner, and we were feeling tropical after being inspired by this post from the popular DIY blog, P.S. I made this.

It’s the perfect time to compose a mood board like this since sun kissed oranges, and reds are trending hard this season. Think resort, tiki bars, and remote islands like Tahiti and Fiji. Artist Paul Gaugin was also strongly influenced by the South Pacific and its colorful flora and fauna. We chose to focus on this theme and introduced a bold vintage feel!

Get inspired! We started this Resort collection for you!
