Spring Summer 2020 has a new take on prints! With vintage prints and Victorian wallpaper, there’s a new inspiration in tow!
After the black and white shades and head-to-toe outfits, the ramps were moving towards a new inspiration. With one eye on the Victorian past and the other on modern silhouettes, this trend combines the two worlds in perfect harmony. And that too, with an all-over print! Taking a refined and romantic front from the Victorian wallpapers, this trend reminds us of the days gone by. Reimagining the drawing-room personality combined with floor-sweeping hemlines, it’s a love affair to follow.
Vintage Designs, Modern Silhouettes
Reimagining prints this season, it was about the flora touch to silhouettes of the new. In a repetitive pattern that could be seen on the Victorian wallpapers, designers had a fresh take to showcase. While Erdem created waist-less gowns and all-over-print, Simone Rocha’s took a tablecloth print and added them to sheer fabrics. From a classic blue and white print, metallic fabrics to embroidered designs and lace trimmings, it was like walking through a vintage interior decor! Richard Quinn’s collection focused on the feminine side of this trend with bows, puffed sleeves and stockings, that too in all printed forms.
Christopher Kane’s collection included skirts, patchwork dresses and skater dresses with this curtain print. Besides that, there were sheer fabrics with lace additions, that reminded us of table throws of the old and royale. The Brock Collection was a pure flashback to the Victorian era with floor-sweeping capes, corset dresses, layered skirts and bows, of course. If Brock was about the Victorian silhouettes, then Area was all about the modern ones. With swimsuit cuts, coats and shirts, there were prints all over, paired with fringes.
From Alexander McQueen’s lace print dresses and paint-suits to Louis Vuitton’s jacket full of print, the ramps were all about the print play. Dolce & Gabbana’s collection was a literal wallflower, with paintings and gold backgrounds. Khaite and Marine Moscone were also part of the season’s print play.
After prints took over the ramps, the celebs were evidently ready to take this trend forward. That too, with their own style mantras. While Celine Dion flaunted her casual style, Katy Perry was flaunting the cover of Vogue. Jennifer Lopez and Taylor Swift took this trend up for their red carpet looks, and the prints couldn’t have shined brighter! On the Indian front too, fashionistas like Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone were heading the print parade. From daywear to evening ones, the wallflower trend was bringing out the best of them all!
