A Patterned Mixed World

There’s nothing more striking to me that the precise and detailed thought that goes into pattern making. I play around with it all the time, and it undoubtedly catches my attention on every type of plane/context. The presence of patterns and motifs in designers’ collections are particularly interesting because they’re an extension of the designer’s creativity and talent beyond an expectational construction of a design. I’ve picked a few of my favorites of the season that will make you do a double-take:

1. Roberto Cavalli’s floral croche work & Valentino’s delicate sea-side objects motifs

Cavalli & Valentino

2. Elise Saab’s floral motif with sharp diagonal lines & Stella McCartney’s layered floral print in pastels

2. Anna Sui space travel and snakeskin prints & Saint Laurent’s sparkeld patched dress of mixed prints

Siu & Saint Laurent

4. Rebbeca Taylor’s lavender polka dots with a Toile De Jouy-like pattern & Mara Hoffman’s sunset and bull’s eye pattern

  1. You should write something along the lines of “how to follow fashion for beginners” or something like that. I wish I knew more about / had a better understanding of fashion. Great post!!
