WINTER PRINTS

This winter season has much to fashionably offer, particularly timeless classics such as stripes, floral prints, and creative eclectic patterns that have appeared in show after show.

Ascetic Plead

Keep warm in heritage check. This print once again made its way down the runways this fall. The autumnal pattern in monochrome and conservative colours will get you through the cold season. Think textured boyfriend-style coats in plead, tartan cotton-twill shirts, check accessories or punky mini skirts in the popular Scottish pattern — these are the pieces to wear now.

Print Blocks

Who doesn’t love a bit of colour blocking? Taking different bold colours and combining them in one outfit? Yes, please! However, the fashion world has just taken it to a whole new level. This autumn is about mixing the different prints that can harmoniously coexist in one garment. One of the most popular options is a mix of stripes, floral print and paisley – quite an impressive combination in one outfit.

Graphic Stripes

We all know that stripes are never out of fashion. Season after season, this print remains one of the favourites and intends to stay in fashion for a long time. This season, vertical and horizontal stripes come in a variety of colours and trimming. But it doesn’t mean we can’t make a little update and pull off the new look with some old pieces. Add a choker or a matching skinny scarf to your old stripy shirt and your look is sorted.

Animal Menagerie

When it comes to high fashion podiums, fauna always stays amongst the favourite topics to explore. But we’re not talking animalistic prints. This time, autumn/winter collections are decorated with cats, parrots and even unicorns. Top fashion designers brought the all-over prints of swans, cats and cheetahs, not to mention bee and butterfly embroideries, on beautiful garments. So don’t refuse your irresistible desire to purchase a dress or top with the prettiest of creatures adorning it.

Flower Power

The autumn 2016 collections yet again did not fail to bring florals into fashion by the top designers. It’s all about pretty floral prints, bouquet patterns, and embroidery on figure-flattering dresses. The print intends to add a flirty, feminine touch to a look.
