Every season, without fail, there are new prints that take over our closet. Last summer everything revolved around the ‘tie-dye’, in pants, shirts, dresses and more … Without a doubt, a trend driven by quarantine and the need for people to reinvent themselves and add some color to their lives in a homemade way.
The intense and very ‘groovy’ colors persist as a trend in the spring 2021. Sportmax, Dior and Proenza Schouler are just a few examples. In the spring, we also noticed checkerboard knits, a less alternative ‘hippie’ before him ‘tie-dye’.
Brands like Tyler McGillivary, Erika Maish, and Paloma Wool added this checkerboard design to knitted sweaters, dresses, and more. ‘It is a very close pattern, and it looks very good’ he says to Vogue, Halima Mbwana, designer of the firm Lilliez, famous for her outfits that give the keys to the perfect style for summer 2021.
Indeed, last year’s prints have paved the way for a more maximalist style. So now that we are fully into summer, to maintain this celebratory fashion mood, we would like to share with you the patterns that dominate the scene.
These are the predictions of the editors of Vogue US about the patterns that we will see the most on the street:
‘The stamping Vichy paintings I think it will be the favorite of the summer. Never has a plaid (picnic) fabric been more desired. We want to wear the sweetest and softest ‘look’ of the summer. I also think that they have become a trend for home clothes and tablecloths that we saw for so long in quarantine. Perhaps some of this has reached the ‘ready-to-wear’ collections and accessories, as demonstrated by Altuzarra, Rodarte and Larroudé ‘, he says. Rickie De Sole, executive director of fashion at Vogue.
‘I’m obsessed with cheerful picnic tablecloth fabric, it contains everything good about American style. Laura Harrier wore a dress with these pictures and the Queen Letizia of Spain, also. They make it look very chic, ‘he says. Janelle Okwodu, fashionable senior writer at Vogue.
‘My bets for this season are towards the type prints PucciWe saw them last summer, but I think only the psychedelic prints (‘trippy’ style) will be the ones to repeat this year. What could be better than this print to wear at your first party after a year, ‘says the fashion news editor of Vogue, Sarah Spellings.
‘I believe faithfully that psychedelic prints will be the thing this summer, from Raf Simmos, through Dries and coming to Paloma Wool, these prints are so ‘groovy’ They’ve been hanging out all over the place A perfect trend to inject some color into a neutral outfit, you will have extra points if you combine it with other patterns’, assures the market editor, Naomi Elizée.
Additionally, the market editor of Vogue, Madeline Fass assures: ‘for a summer that returns to love and sharing together, we are not surprised that we take references from the 60s and 70s, and their flowery patterns that are now reinvented with a modern silhouette.
And whether we can fly (or not) to faraway places, the retro-inspired print looks good on everything from crop tops, capris, miniskirts, shorts, sundresses, and even bikinis that are sure to give you a good time. trip ‘, assures Madeline Fass.
‘While I am a fan of knitting classic ‘preppy’, I have also enjoyed its new rebirth, much more playful on the part of some of my favorite designers this season, specifically, with the return of the diamond squares. My interest was first piqued with the minimalist version of the Grace Wales Bonner for its fall 2021 collection, as well as the knitted leggings from Prada’s spring 2021 collection, which translated the print into something softer and more diffuse.
But my favorite performance? I would never have the nerve to pull it off, but the sparkly and form-fitting Swarovski crystal vest Ludovic de Saint Sernin It is the most glorious version of an outfit to wear diamonds that you can imagine ‘, says the collaborator Liam Hess.
