Trendspotting: Print Trends at NYFW Spring 2012


Yesterday I showcased the trends I identified based on colors, and fabulous, and today we’re taking a look at the trends based on patterns and prints.  My rule for identifying a trend is that it has to appear at least three times, three times a charm (and a trend)!

Let’s not waste another minute.

Make the Cut: Not technically a “print” this trend appeared on a variety of runways and I am categorizing it in the trend category because of the way the specific fabric details catch your eye like a print would.  Showcased here are three examples of the cut out look, there is a playful, sophisticated and full on bombshell interpretation.  I like that in a few months we could all interpret this trend to fit our own style.

Garden Party: This trend for spring isn’t necessarily a surprise, flowers in spring – who knew?  But, I really loved the execution.  For certain there were runway looks with soft petals, and sweet posies, but these styles feature flowers that could not be confused with shrinking violets.  The color is bold, cheerful elevates the sweet flower beyond the Easter Egg roll.

Tribe Leader: All through the summer and into the early fall I have shared my love for the tribal trend for home and fashion.  I was delighted to see it continue with a more fierce and wild interpretation.  The look for the safari chic, and tribal inspired runways was not fashionable tourist on safari, it was Queen of the Jungle, and Leader of the Pack – something we can all aspire to be for Spring 2012.

Colors, patterns, prints, oh my!  Are any of these make you excited for Spring 2012?
