Let's take a look at several themes in relation to colour. Colour right now is a key driving force within collections, that's highlighting a positive and emotional connection we're experiencing with it.
A lot of colours we're seeing are brights and fluros, softened by tie dye, spray effects and colours bleeding or merging into one another.
This soft and blurred approach is further explored by Dries Van Noten who's continued this idea from SS21. There's something incredibly modern that evokes the nostalgia of city lights, speed and the idea of travel.  There's something new and exciting about these prints that are like reinterpreted checks or stripes. It's also the use of digital that created such pure and vibrant colours that look newer as electric than acid.

We found more inspiration looking at the work of artist Laurens Heurtebise with his exciting use of colour @laurensheurtebise

This cool print by Marcelo Burlon County of Milan SS22 has such a retro vibe with the hard stencil edge and soft airbrush.

We're even seeing tie dye evolving in a much softer and airbrushed way, with no definition in pattern but more abstract as clouds of colours.

Or as seen at Louis Vuitton, a direct reference to graffiti aerosols.

These prints from Paul Smith literally like clouds and make a nice move on for tie dye. Red sky at night, shepherd's delight!

These summer prints by MSGM have a whimsical vibe of beach vacation happiness.

Now things a looking a little darker with these next wash effects from Doublet SS22, Phipps SS22 and Pigalle SS22, still proving the longevity of the tie dye trend we've been seeing for several seasons now.

These smoky/inky border effects make a statement opposed to ombre.
