Milan is upping it’s game this season and Spring/Summer 2016 runway was filled with an abundance of rich, decorative prints and an inspiring variation on trends from the designers, who were not always following the norm. Take Prada for instance who went out on a limb and gave us a bit of everything going, a mash-up of seventies wallpapers to mid-century modern, it all came together in the usual sophisticated Prada way. Gucci also went for a mixing pot of ideas from oriental to expensive vintage with just the right amount of frills and decoration. Etro with their usual affinity towards textiles brought a romantic folk look to the fore, where beautiful embroidery prints took centre stage in delicate silhouettes. Catch Milan Part 2 later this week and the Paris Shows next week.

Kowalskivision_photographic_prints_pattern_01

The Patternbank team saw these inspiring photographic images featured on Kuvva. A real visual mix of conversational & photographic distorted prints that are trending heavily at the moment.

These inspiring pieces are the work of Polish photographer Peter Kowalski who is currently based in Kraków. This project named ‘Untitled 2013’ looks at how the city of Rome has changed and grown into an incredibly busy and complex metropolis. Kowalski explains, each image consists of 3 to 5 photographs taken at different times and represent different architectural periods. Put together they dance in an unexpectedly symbiotic way, co-existing in a mosaic of shapes and colours. See more of his inspiring work at kowalskivision.com
