Prints and patterns for Fall/Winter 2015-16

Monday, 18 August 2014
In this new first-look article, our team of experts reveal two inspirational print and pattern trends for the Fall/Winter 2015-16 season. Bold yet wearable, these prints have been taken from Trendstop's F/W15-16 Women's Print Forecast and as neither have been seen in previous seasons, both prints are likely to continue as mainstream womenswear fashion trends for the year ahead.




A key trend from the Paris runways, garments catch the eye with mix 'n' match print panels, which clash styles to create hybrid aesthetics. Plain shapes are revamped with blocks of bold pattern, with monochrome tones adding a stark sophistication. Other interpretations incorporate colourful florals intercut with wide black stripes.




In New York, geometric repeat prints are blown up with enlarged scales for a modern twist on conventional retro looks. We see houndstooth applied in diamond panels for a patchwork-like effect, while colourful patterns stand out on white bases. For a more surreal statement, interrupt geos with body part motifs.
