    FAUX TEXTURE   


The faux textures divide into two main groups- as we try to fake the textures of mother nature and of other materials and textures such as cable knit. Nature inspires, from growing bacteria to geology and natural crop circles, we see great depth here, as well as bark, fur, wood being faked in a digital design. It is one of the broadest and yet largest graphic expressions.



    OPTICAL ILLUSIONS   


Optical illusion prints are once again catching our eye, literally. Worn head to toe the prints are typically tamer and monochrome, as opposed to the a-line mini dresses which are bold in color and design. Size altering chevrons add newness to this trend. By the time they reached Paris they grew in strength and diversity, ranging between Òsquint your eyes to be hyptoinizedÓ designs to oversized swirls, flowing in random directions. Excitement comes when these illusions are on citrus limes and oranges and are sliced geometrics.

   PLAIDS   


There's always a plaid on offer, especially as the colder weather starts to creep back in. For Fall 14 the color palette includes various orange tones and a strong cobalt blue, muted, menswear monochromes and of course a huge influx of red tartan. Newness comes when the plaids are pieced together with clashing color combos, or lime green options on blazers, vests and oversized outerwear.
