Print Trends

It used to be that prints were “a personal thing” and everybody had their own particular preference. This made it very difficult for designers, who felt they couldn’t satisfy anyone. Today, there is an exciting print craze with an explosion of fabulous, colorful designs and influences saturating the market. And the more prints mixed together, the richer the statement.

I love this trend because it reminds me of wonderfully creative periods in history when prints reflected new energy in societies—times of artistic expression and transition. Favorites of mine from epicenters of change, still influential to this day are William Morris and the Bloomsbury Group in England, Marimekko in Finland and even the Woodstock phenomenon in the USA.

Such revolutions in print and pattern are the organic interpretations of natural forms, reflecting an affinity to nature and an influence of other cultures. As in the past, art and textiles, clothing, accessories and interiors are all influenced by this current trend and are available to interpret for your own personal style. 

Hanky Panky has many fun prints to choose from when you wish to express yourself underneath….
