I am enthused by some of the print and patternation coming through on the AW 2010/11 catwalks. Print adds another dimension and quality to the sharpest silhouette. Abstract prints in monochromatic colours are still prevalent and it is a fun challenge ascertaining what these prints have been inspired by – animal skin? Florals?
One of the strongest designers that I have seen utilise print so far this season is Carolina Herrera. Her collection has a unique handwriting, but is cohesive through similar silhouettes. The diversity of print and colour is exciting and refreshing. Quality fabrics also assist in providing depth and vibrancy of colour and detail.
