01-alexander-mcqueen-ss17-rtw-paris

The Patternbank team are loving the new SS17 Ready to Wear collection from Alexander McQueen in our final print highlight for Paris Fashion Week. The Shetland Isles in Scotland was the source of inspiration for dresses adorned in wild flowers and traditional lace from the crofters and Fair Isle patterns which made up cosy jumpers and delicate dresses.

05-kim-kleever

Patternbank love the colour and movement created in these photographs by New York artist Kim Kleever. Reminiscent of historical landscape artists like Turner and the Hudson River School, Kleever assembles miniature scenes in a 200 gallon tank and then submerges them in water. Paint is dispersed through the water creating these random abstract images which he then photographs with stunning results. Check out his Instagram for some beautiful colour inspiration.
