Models are crazy for prints that have dominated the market for the past few seasons. While hand-painted florals and tropical photo prints have captured most of the attention, it’s the high contrast graphic prints that have us swooning. The “avatars” from Miuccia Prada’s Fall collection stormed the runway in purple and orange lattice print suits that burned the graphic design into our minds as a symbol of power. Marc Jacobs followed suit this spring with a collection strictly limited to the singular concept of stripes- while at Louis Vuitton it was “checks.” The hard edge designs are a perfect balance between sophistication and whimsy and the best thing about graphic prints is how seriously flattering they are. If you’re worried that this trend is too graphic for you, ease yourself in: add a printed scarf from Theodora & Callum to a bold colored sweater or pair your favorite LBD with these awesome platforms from Topshop. If you’re a graphic all-star, go for the 60’s inspired houndstooth dress from Diane von Furstenburg.
