Let's have a look at the colorful spring that awaits us. This year we can have fun with a lot of prints. I think we can say that for most of them the inspiration is the jungle.Miuccia Prada plays with monkeys and bananas prints paired with colored stripes pieces while Marchesa chooses geometrical motifes in yellow and blue giving to the print an african appeal.
Stella McCartney makes fruity prints and Matthew Williamson creates a series of bags for Bulgari with kaleiscope,nature inspired,prints.
Missoni collection mantains the style of the maison,their knitted prints are always beautiful.
We maybe feel the temptation to mix these prints.
But how can we mix prints with style and avoid a messy overdose?
Which print can be put together?
It's a good idea to make a contrast,to pair different prints together (floral and stripes) less dangerous than to pair similar prints together like 2 kind of stripes (thin and bold).
What is your best mixture?
