Spring 2013 Runway Trend - Prints!

Posted on May 21 2013

The spring 2013 runway shows were all about prints. From gingham and plaids at Kate Spade, to stripes, lace, and elaborate botanicals at Dolce and Gabbana. Even the often severe Prada featured more abstract and geometric florals. Subculture favorite Betsey Johnson had stylized cherries, and sharp, high-contrast florals in feminine shapes. Heartbreaker Fashion has always featured bold and unique prints, and our current collections are no exception - we have our own unique takes on these runway trends. Gingham is a cotton or linen fabric woven in a check patten, typically red or blue. Despite its common association with the 1950s American West and countryside, gingham originated in India, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Plants common in these regions produced the madder (red) and indigo (blue) dye colors. It was imported to Europe and America, both of whom began manufacturing their own gingham fabric using synthetic dyes during the industrial revolution.  We have loads of great retro gingham style - check out our Beverly Dress in Blue Gingham, or the Lil Lou Lou Headband. The Maybeline sundress in cotton candy seersucker plaid is sweet and sexy in trendy pinks and blue. Our Gypsy Skirt in Chantelle in Berry has a striking black floral on a hot pink background. The Marseilles Dress in the new Katherine Purple Floral is striking and versatile, with the same feminine full skirt seen on the Betsey Johnson runway. For cherry prints, we have numerous skirts and dresses in blacks, whites and even blues. For a bold, more urban look similar to Prada's Spring 2013 mod style florals, we have the Fifi dress in Elke, or the graphic Monique Dress in Cici. If you enjoyed the umbrella stripes at Dolce and Gabbana, Try the Jolene Dress in Blue Prague Stripe. Try that or the Twirl Skirt for an afternoon in a seaside Cinque Terre Cafe, or at least imagining it - Che bella ragazza!
