The Patternbank team were at Berlin fashion week to visit the European mega show Bread & Butter, as well as dropping into Premium, Seek and Bright. The shows were busy but not to capacity this season. Things all change next season with Bread & Butter moving to Barcelona for its January 2015 show. An Asian edition is also planned to launch next September giving a truly international flavour to Bread & Butter’s trade show presence.


Updated Tropicals, warped visuals and oddball conversations are still continuing to trend. New fresh print & graphics seen included weird botanicals and tie dye techniques, reworked vintage Hawaiian prints and reflective street graphics.

Jp King is a writer, designer and publisher from Toronto Canada, with a self confessed paper obsession. His love of paper manifests itself in collage and installation murals, and Jp also indulges his interest running ‘Paper Pusher’ an experimental Risograph print and design studio. This calendar is a result of one of his experiments, the combination of fluorescent pink ink with the simple lines of geometric shapes, creates an illusion of depth and dimension. Patternbank loves his use of half tones and the overlay of elementary shapes and lines creating stylish prints with a retro appeal. See more here.

Patternbank are loving the work of artist Steven Lowery who is currently exhibiting in the Saatchi Gallery’s ‘Paper’ exhibition. This collection of drawings which he made between 2003 and 2004 are a clashing collection of quotations, advertising slogans, song lyrics and even a line from Tony Hancock’s suicide note: THINGS JUST WENT WRONG TOO MANY TIMES. Lowery attributes this creative psychedelic artwork to his “desperate dissatisfaction” with popular culture and the onslaught of “hate-fostering tabloids and listless reality TV”. This collision of words, pattern and colour can’t fail to arrest the eye and its content offers a banquet of food for thought.

The legendary works of graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo have proved to be an inspiration for decades. With a current trend towards pop art, Yokoo’s posters offer a wealth of graphical inspiration and retro appeal. The rising sun motif which recurs throughout his body of work, was considered old-fashioned at the time, but has become emblematic of “Yokoo style” and an international symbol of Japanese pop art. Visit Yokoo’s website to see more of his more recent work and exhibitions.
