PRINTS FROM THE HEART
We're huge fans of the bold use of colour and texture in prints, just for the vibrancy and energy it gives. There's just something special about painterly expressions that can enhance colour and evoke emotion.
Dries Van Noten is one of our favourite designers who season after season shows a beautiful understanding towards colour. The abstract print as shown above is simple in colour which adds the air to an evoked drama.
In a bolder way, the prints at Roksanda's Fall21 collection showed fearless canvases of colour and movement in stroke. The way the brushstrokes and colour communicates even in the most abstract way look harmonious. Not forgetting the impact of large scale that goes hand in hand with this artistic statement.
This dress by Altuzarra for Fall21 really highlights the ease of abstract brushstrokes and mark making as pattern for print.
These following works of art are by Helen Frankenthaler. They really show a balance of colours by form and movement of her brushstrokes.
We love this vintage piece with its artistic and simple camo design.
The trend we've been seeing of blurred and watercolour from SS21 will likely continue into SS22. Here we see blurry bloom florals at 6397 Resort22, which again is reminiscent of camo due to colourway but more romantic. Get ready to be more expressive!
