Time to get doodling


We love all fun prints here at The Ministry of Pattern and what could be more reflective of the times we're living in than doodle therapy and feel good messages of hope and optimism! It's a time to get your coloured pens, biros, spray cans and Sharpies out.

The direction for SS22 is being led by Balenciaga and Vetements, both being concept leaders on the main catwalk stage.

From doodles, to scribbles, to graffiti this print trend is youthful and subversive. Visual thoughts are jotted down and expressed mainly as all over rather than placement.


This really is too cute for words, especially the blue ballpoint on white and grey suiting, as seen at Vetements SS22.

This floral print update is a great mix to this print trend that's got a subversive vintage vibe made new. A great idea to explore.

Scribble down your thoughts. There's also something nostalgic about this that's reminiscent of vandalising the school desk when you were a kid - if you did that sort of thing.


I love you in sign language.

It's been 20 years since Stephen Sprouse shocked us with the Louis Vuitton bag when he worked in collaboration with Marc Jacobs, who was then artistic director for the house. Time sure flies and on reflection it seems to be a real turning point of how French fashion houses have changed.
