Womens and Mens Original Artwork F/W 2015-16 Inspiration
Courtesy of Fashion Snoops
Get a first look at the F/W 15/16 original artwork as forecasted by the editors at Fashion Snoops. Cautionary Tale florals overlap with and strengthen The Royals theme for women, which is given a feminine touch with hand drawn styles. These are additionally seen throughout the Pen & Ink trend for men, where doodles, sketched faces, and traditional screen-printing methods come together for unique illustrated options. Geometrics and graphics are dominant in the Rubiks Cube theme for women and Bauhaus for men, adding a playful, nostalgic, and experimental trend into the mix.
WOMEN’S PRINT DIRECTION
The hand drawn style to our graphics adds a great feminine touch to this otherwise dark and medieval trend, which is strengthened by the addition of Cautionary Tale florals and Damask wallpaper prints. Two of our designs are pliable to both pattern and screens, and we also offer a repeat conversational of illustrated locks and keys as we protect all that is valuable.
William Morris was our main source of inspiration when it came to womens Cautionary Tale graphics. Weve created three all over designs inspired by his great wallpapers and tapestries. The colors vary between warm reds and bold blues, as we have included hand drawn and also digitally structured florals. They are all organized so to be used as a repeat, although printing them in panels/pieced sections is also a great option.
Rubik’s Cube is where the fun comes into play, as we see 80s and 90s inspired geometrics: seemingly random in shape, we offer two very different graphics. One is full of primary colors and vivid, as we reinvent the check, and the second is a more subtle monochrome alternative with fun shapes repeated in a mature colorway.
MEN’S PRINT DIRECTION
Bauhaus, and in particular Kadinsky definitely inspire here, with a more simplistic version of geometric lines and color blocks with a mathematical element to them, as the geometrics are symmetrical and balanced. The simple design allows for experimentation with texture, material and color. We kept one of our designs two-dimensional, being super simple and ready to be placed on a sweatshirt, and the other design has a colored pencil textured element in a primary colorway which takes us right back to Math class, with a sense of nostalgia.
PEN & INK
Doodles, sketched faces and traditional screen printing methods come together within Pen and Ink. All four of our designs are great screen options, which can be easily recolored. We offer you two simple lined face illustrations, both perfect for a simple screen, alongside one more sketchy, free design and lastly an edited digital painting with motion blur and paint splatters to add texture to the background.
More Report Details
The two screens that Fashion Snoops created are heavily layered and flexible in how you can use them. We have combined an illustrated anatomical element as well as referencing music and science with edited photoreals. Great texture is added with newspaper cut outs and blueprints as backgrounds.
