This week the Patternbank Team have been finding inspiration on the London catwalks Spring/Summer 15 where print and pattern has been strong with bold individuality in expressive florals and painterly marks to more delicate and intricate pattern. Spring fresh colours were accompanied with solid black and navy for a new summer vibe. Look out for more of the catwalk collection to follow later this week.

Susanna Starr uses a range of material to create delicate sculptures that play with scale and pattern. Starr’s practice employs a talent for translating materials in unexpected ways with the use of painted, cut and layered mylar, to delicate wall works of wood veneer with designs meticulously cut out. Starr’s exhibition earlier this year at the Marcia Wood Gallery, “Psychedelicate”, was an explosion of pattern and colour in the neon coloured works suspended ceiling to floor as well as hanging in multiple layers on the wall. With Crafted lace looks being an important trend for next season, we here at Patternbank love Starr’s way of contradicting materials with imagery.
