A key trend in New York collections, this elegant look combines upholstery-style prints with aesthetics derived from the Far East. Tory Burch demonstrates a clean look with delicate florals on a clean white base, while Carolina Herrera goes contemporary with a blown-up bloom placement. 3.1 Phillip Lim and Karen Walker opt for ornate looks with swirling patterns and curvilinear embroidery.

Modern Edge

Elsewhere, we see Peter Som add a modern edge to a coordinated ensemble with pops of colorful pattern on a stark black base, while Jill Stuart’s traditional Eastern print expresses a rich appeal for summer in shades of oxblood and blood red. Monochrome designs appear at Thom Browne on a jacket, as delicate motifs take on a feminine finish with a sugar pink base at Diane Von Furstenberg.

Emerging Trend: Playtime Patterning

Light-hearted Charm

A playful print story from London revamps apparel and accessories with a light-hearted charm. Abstract print mixes stand out in fashion brights at Meadham Kirchhoff, as H by H Yildirim keeps it simple with an oversized insect placement on a clean white base. Ashish adds a fun statement to casual jeans with sequined bananas and cigarettes, while a jumble of childish rainbows and smiley faces stands out in multicolor on Anya Hindmarch bags.

Other interpretations see Fyodor Golan’s directional ensemble combining an oversized slogan top with a colorful patterned stripe skirt, as House of Holland bags hint at a retro inspiration with 3D floral appliqué on a flat yellow clutch. A key designer for this trend, Ashish showcases cartoony celebrity portrait placements and tongue-in-cheek slogans, both executed in sparkling sequins.
