So long to perfectly coordinated outfits. Designers went all out with mismatched prints at the Resort/Cruise 2013 shows. Every combination of stripes, graphics, polka dots, plaid and animal prints could be seen paired flawlessly coming down the runway.
Designers at the Resort/Cruise 2013 shows had a lighter more whimsical take on prints. While previous runways maintained a stronger more graphic aesthetic, the Resort lines emphasized watercolor florals, blurred abstract prints, and wavy stripes.
Prints: My favorite area of prints to cover each season is the stipe & the dot. It is every designer's task at one point or another to reinvent this surface textile design and make it new & fresh...once again.
