Print Trends | Abstract Textures

 FOREGROUND Piazza Sempione, Chloe BACKGROUND Givenchy, Yigal AzrouĆ«l, Rochas
The Resort collections feature an array of small scale prints – from African inspired at Rochas to dots and florals at Givenchy – which become abstract and textural at this reduced size. Try miniaturizing your designs to achieve the look.

Pattern Inspiration | Japanese Ikat

Portland-based label Crazy Wind is run by Chiyo Takahashi, who sources Kasuri fabrics straight from Japan. Her line got us excited to look at other indigo dyed ikats, and we found lots of great examples, as seen above.
