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.
Take a peek at the polka dot prints from EzTextiles we paired with the inspirational images from the collaboration.

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?
Start with some ideas from our Crazy For Paisley Board so you can download and play!
Closing out the month of fashion frenzy, Paris never ceases to disappoint! We were baffled by the eclectic mix of surrealism, dreamy impressionistic watercolors, eastern & western art and classic florals. The wide array of ideas allows people of all tastes to find a collection to dazzle the senses. We can’t put our finger on just one overall theme, which allows us the freedom to let our design aesthetic wander to the unknown.
Try your hand at pairing unconventional prints with classic designs such as a foulard or polka dots! Why not create a collection of your own on EzTextiles and see where your imagination takes you! Don’t forget that our search function has many layers, so once you choose a search option in the drop down menu on the left, additional sub-menus appear to further deepen your search!

Strolling the streets of Tribeca, we spotted this lovely lady wearing such an outstanding coat! Check out her over-sized houndstooth print! Right on trend, we love the use of red instead of the everyday black and white and of course we had to head to our library to see what we could come up with!
Getting huge print proportions is a snap on Eztextiles, because you can quickly zoom a print repeat in and out to make it just the right size! Visualizing just got a whole lot easier! Click the image below to check out our collection based off her delightful outerwear.
Prints were front and center in Milan during the Italian Fashion Week! Juxtaposed to London’s exploration of brights, in Milan we saw muted tones that gave an overall darker sensibility. We also noted photographs & artwork translated directly onto fabrics, and new twists on classic animal prints.
Click the image below to explore all of Milan Fashion week, and get started making a new collection on EzTextiles.com! We’ve got animal prints, geometrics, and florals to give you a jump-start, all of which are fully editable so you can easily download your designs and recolor them with your unique color palette!
