KEY PRINTS AND PATTERNS FROM THE SPRING 2016 CATWALKS 


Hot off the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris, these print directions will prove influential in updating directional womenswear designs for SS 2016, along with more mainstream collections going into SS 2017. Key developments can be seen in Print & Pattern, Geos, Stripes & Checks, including creative experiments with natural world aesthetics and striking slogan looks. Elsewhere, fresh, ultra-feminine florals introduce a sophisticated appeal. WeConnectFashion readers are presented with three must-have print directions emerging from the S/S16 ready-to-wear catwalks thanks to Trendstop.

    ORGANIC PIGMENTS    

Two aesthetics combine into one directional trend, as organic-inspired prints look newly sophisticated with artistic undertones.
  • Patterns reference materials found in the natural world
  • Bold silhouettes create leafy plant life shapes
  • Abstract brush strokes resemble earthy mineral surfaces

    THE WATERCOLOR MASTERS    

Influenced by the work of master painters, watercolor prints bring a mood of romantic expressiveness to womenswear.
  • Blurry pastel-colored blooms are key
  • Both all-over patterns and oversized placements can be used
  • Pure white bases look fresh, highlighting the clothing as canvas effect

    FIRST DRAFT    

Prints appear to be going through the creative process, on show with imperfect or amended slogans.

  • Placements are cut off mid-phrase or interrupted by placements
  • Hand-written typography goes abstract with doodled repeats
  • Alternatively, scribbled motifs are used in place of actual words
