Prints are one of the main design-shaping tools for any types of garments. They determine the mood and the influence of the garments, and they establish the flow of the main fashion trends for the season. The spring/ summer 2014 print trends promise to be quite bright and energizing, filled with sunny and very spectacular drives. Xoxo Mod Girl Sara!
Spring/ Summer 2014 Print Trend #1: Floral Fantasy: Floral prints seem to be really timeless and extremely versatile to create and alter. During every season, we see a wide range of options introducing the enormous number of ways that floral prints can be designed and put with. The marvelous examples of these can be found in the collections of many fashion giants like Dolce & Gabbana, BCBG Max Azria, Miu Miu, Hermés, Elie Saab, Antonio Marras, Emporio Armani, Cavalli, Versace, Alberta Ferretti, Mulberry, Blumarine, Nina Ricci, Zimmermann, Jean Paul Gaultier, and others.
pring/ Summer 2014 Print Trend #2: Polka Dots On the Go: Though it seemed like the designers have almost forgotten about this trend recently, the new shows proved just the contrary. In fact, polka dots have been given a fresh breath, presented via very eye-catching and attractive designs, created with a variety of colors. This color diversity refers to both the background and the dot colors. On the other hand, this diversity expands from colors to shapes and sizes as well, being presented as a variety of dot sizes, too, from tiny to huge.
Spring/ Summer 2014 Print Trend #3: Stripy Metamorphosis: No doubt, stripes are always a never-dying theme for any season. However, there is something specific about the stripy trends of the spring/summer 2014. That’s the super creative transformation that has been made with stripes, turning them into radiant oceanic options, cute combinations with florals, laser-cut shapes, verti-horizontal pairings and collages, super nice color combinations achieved with stripes, and finally the enormous diversity of stripy renovations reaching up to abstract and checkered-resembling options.
Spring/ Summer 2014 Print Trend #4: The Abstract World: The abstract prints are quite a modern and freshly emerging drive in the world of fashion trends. These designs involve a huge diversity of themes, from florals to simple and minimalistic prints, yet they have something mysterious and charismatic about them that really manages to catch your attention. You can have a nosey at the options suggested by Prabal Gurung, Nicole Miller, Jeremy Laing, Versace, Herve Leger, Valentino, and Missoni.
Spring/ Summer 2014 Print Trend #5: Text Prints and Doodles: This is a very youthful and spectacular fashion trend inspired by the cool and relaxed drives and carrying the similarly expressed philosophy of the young. Such prints are very popular among the looks for the spring/summer 2014, found as a great diversity of options for the most specific choices. These designs are demonstrated with overlapping patterns, clearly legible text prints, at times being brand names as well, or just some key messages the brands want to convey. The examples are found in DKNY, Rebecca Minkoff, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Zoe Jordan, and Moschino Cheap & Chic.
Spring/ Summer 2014 Print Trend #6: Iridescent Prints: The iridescent and joyous color combinations are also remarkably popular for the coming spring/summer 2014 season. These patterns are found within very different prints and shapes, be that watercolor prints, florals, blurry versions, even mosaic images, or just color blocking.
Spring/ Summer 2014 Print Trend #7: Animal Prints: This is another never-to-be-gone focus for every season and for all the changing fashion trends. Being nicely manipulable and flexible, these patterns are innovated and altered all the time, and still they manage to preserve their innate glamour and chic. (Outfit above available at La Mod)
