SPRING15 TRENDS BLACKWHITE Runway | SS15 Print Stories

Holly Fulton | Duro Olowu | DKNY | Bibhu Mohapatra | Custo Barcelona | Temperley London

We’re seeing loads of black and white geometrics on the runways, with interesting ethnic and woven looking prints. Our favorites are the print mixes–Duro Olowu’s quirky hand drawn-looking prints and Temperley London’s mix of lace, weaving and diamonds.

Oscar de la Renta | Temperley London | Erdem | Christopher Kane | Whistles | Joseph

On the lace front, there is a great amount of variation–from the graphic cutouts in Whistles collections to the ornate 70’s lace of Erdem or Marchesa. Loving Joseph’s nautical knot variation.

It’s not surprising that these cheerful prints hail from the land down under. Launched in 2012 by three friends, Kip & Co creates colorful bedding for adults, kids, and tiny ones. Inspiration for the seasonal collections comes from “the everyday and the out of the way.” Although only sold by Australian and New Zealand boutiques, you can pick up a sheet set or blanket online here or here.

tartan farmhouse at leyden farm midlothian 1 Exteriors | Tartan

On a farm near Edinburgh, street artists TrenchOne, Elph and Purshone have created a light filled celebration of Scotland. Leyden Farm in West Lothian has been transformed into a plaid wonderland using projection mapping. Layered in tartan finery, the farm buildings are a stunning representation of the country’s most beloved pattern style.

We are loving these two print directions. Jungle Leaves is all about the wild and wonderful foliage of the tropics, with photographic prints as a main focus. We’re also seeing a lot of folk weaving influences and techniques as seen in our Around the World story.

The New York shows are over and we’ve gathered up the print stories. We love the artsy craftsy feel of these two directions; paper crafts and painterly explosions. Lots of explosive energy rings out in the true spirit of New York City (or maybe the New York of the 80’s?)

Peaceful, in a colorful but muted palette, the amazing work of Mae Engelgeer adds perfection to any space. The textile artist, hailing from Amsterdam, has a sought after style featuring geometric accents that looks amazing on anything from tea towels to bed clothes.
