Get Ready! It's Going Into Print!
Literally speaking of course. One of the absolute most repeated trends on the runway this Spring season is that of Patterns! Prints! and Polka Dots! Oh My! It's absolutely no joke- if there has ever been a time to invest in wacky, off the wall prints for your wardrobe, it is now. Fashion of course represents and symbolizes on the runway, what is going on in the rest of the world, North, South, East and West of the catwalk. In the current era of Not-So-Good-Feelings, and the upcoming inauguration of President Elect Barack Obama, it is only natural that designers would create collections that depicted bright, optimistic and whimsical patterns to inject into the closets of women throughout the world. This season, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Marni, and Dior are just a small hand full of the slew of designers that have adorned their dresses, pantsuits, jackets, blouses, frocks, and even tights in an array of patterns. And it's not just polka dots and straight lines either. Patterns as imaginary, creative and inventive as possible all come together on many of the designer's collections. In bright neons, all the way to toned down natural hues of tan, black and ivory- patterns of dots, spots, lines, splats, geometric Hodge-podges and more adorn the most sought-after pieces for Spring. These lighthearted and inspiring patterns on Spring's Ready to Wear reflect our new hope that Change will soon arrive-both in our closets, and in our world.
