The Ready to Wear Autumn/Winter 2016-17 catwalk shows began last week in New York and Patternbank have compiled the strongest print looks from the designers in two inspiring and informative posts. In this first selection we see designers taking a trip to the Seventies, revisiting historic exotic wallpaper and exploring elegant stylised floral pattern use. Watch out for our Part 2 New York Print round up which will be live later this week.

Kjell Varvin constructs installations from a variety of objects in the corner of his studio which you can see on his blog here. The simplicity of shapes and colours are transformed when he superimposes photos of the sculptures to create the Digital Prints shown here. Varvin likes to think we should view with an open mind and let our eyes wander through the elements without generating associations or ideas to those objects. “I am mostly using neutral elements based on geometry, resulting in images that do not contain much symbolism. Of course, a disc may give ideas of the sun or the moon, and a rectangle could refer to architecture, but that depends on where they are placed in the composition.” Varvin is based in Hoevik, Norway you can see more of his prints at digitprints.blogspot.de

Geometry Daily is a Tumblr started by German Interaction and Graphic Designer Tilman Zitzmann, he started the blog when he was taking a year out of “normal” agency design work to look after his two small daughters – he needed something to keep him on his designer’s toes. As Tilman explains, “I committed myself to two of my favorite fields, geometry and minimalism, and started creating graphics and publishing them on a Tumblr, one each and every day. It turned out that this was one of the best ideas I ever had.” Brilliant! Go check out the Tumblr.
