Updating both Contemporary and Young Fashion, forward print designs introduce new approaches to an array of aesthetic influences, spanning florals and stripes to check, geos and camou. These trends have been forecast to inform print design development for the upcoming season, influencing high-end and fast fashion collections going into F/W 16-17 and more mainstream ranges for F/W 17-18.

Prints from the Archive


In womenswear, surfaces appear to have been sourced from the archive, characterized by interior-look patterns.
  • Antiqued aesthetics with aged upholstery effects are key 
  • Muted colorways tone vintage-look florals and wallpaper prints 
  • Touches of jewel shades or metallics add richness

    30’s WALL FLOWER      

We see wallpaper patterns express a vintage 30’s feel with stylized florals, emerging strongly in women’s fashion.
  • Collections create a mood of interiors-inspired elegance 
  • Organic motifs make a statement with oversized proportions 
  • Color pop bases bring shapes to life
