Spring Summer 2019 Print Trend: Pattern Overlay
Warning: Things are about to get really wild!
This spring summer 2019 print trend is just as puzzling as Lady Gaga’s Met oufits! Just kidding. Our next trend to note is what we’re calling “Pattern Overlay”. In basic it’s the unsolvable-jigsaw-puzzle of prints that actually makes for a pretty mess. The key prints at play here are wild animal prints, florals (no surprises here!) and geometric patterns all starkly juxtaposed in bold and dark hues.
Aigner’s Fall Winter 2018 collection was a melting pot of mystical prints and silhouettes. With a boho-wanderlust vibe, the ensembles and print direction were a portrayal of wordly travels and treasures. The “layering” concept didn’t restrict itself to just the clothes and in turn played the key direction for prints too. Fierce animal prints were offset with bold geometric patterns that were accented with gold and bronze embroidery. While Aigner played with dark hues, Bhanuni’s collection leaned towards a slightly surreal side with pretty hues, broken lines, whispers of floral and relaxed silhouettes.
While feline prints might not be your friendly-summer staple, we’re considering slicing it up and partnering it with florals for a new take on warm-weather chic.
Don’t be afraid to play with crazy print pair-ups because next spring summer, being a chaotic mess is what’ll get you HOT!
