This week, FashionUnited readers get an exclusive look at three print and pattern directions that will be key to the SS19 season. 60s Ethnic looks at African aesthetics through a vintage lens as tribal patterns meet retro prints while typography with a feminist twist moves on the previous season's branded statements. All-over patterns make an impact in Full Body Canvas with a mix of ultra-vibrant, hyper contrasting print effects.
Ethnic aesthetics are transformed with a distinctively retro infusion. Tropical motifs and compact geometrics work together in a harmonic clash of patterns and highly saturated colours. Island florals and tribal prints are rendered with a 60s inspired graphic vibrancy.
Doodled drawings adapt to a more feminine sensibility for the Spring/Summer 2019 season. Handwritten messages and scrapbook illustrations are enhanced with a delicately engineered linear approach, complementing minimalist monochrome palettes.
The Full Body Canvas
The body becomes a canvas in this energetic Spring/Summer direction. More is more, as scaled-up, statement geometrics layer over conversationals and heightened photographic contrasts and against bright accent blockings for a hyper collage effect.
