The Paris runway was no disappointment for pattern lovers, as Spring/Summer 2016 came alive with a vibrant and eclectic mix of colour and pattern. Dries Van Noten ticked all the boxes with his eccentric dress-up collection of clashing brights and rich patterns all fighting for attention and Giambattista Valli successfully combined an array of 70’s furnishing patterns in attractive shades to produce a wearable retro look. Catch Paris Part 2 later next week to complete Patternbank’s coverage of all the best bits from the SS16 shows.

Paris Fashion Week may have been the more subtle of shows but when it came to showing print it was sophisticated and highly wearable. Dries stole the show with his runway of forest moss where the models relaxed in their exotic travelled prints. Forests seem to be a recurring theme from Chalayan’s Orange Trees of North Africa to the more mystical folk and fairytale inspired at Lanvin and Undercover. Stay tuned for Part 2 later this week.
