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.

Patternbank love the vibrantly colourful paintings and prints by Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. Milhazes is well known for her work which draws on both Latin American and European Traditions. A first major retrospective of her large-scale abstract paintings inspired by Brazilian and European Modernism, Baroque forms, popular culture, and the decorations of Carnival is on show from Sept 19th 2014 – Jan 18th 2015 at Pérez Art Museum Miami.

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.

Inspiration for Spring / Summer 2013 – Prints inspired by Botanical hand drawn studies – Engineered Laser cut lace – Pigment printed florals – Delicate burn out patterns – Broderie Anglaise – Eyelet Lace – Metallic touches

Hand drawn using metallic inks on velvety black paper, Mary O’Malley captures complex detail and creates a new world of hybrid chandeliers, curious bouquets, dense gardens and imagined landscapes. They evoke images of intricate lace patterns for us and have an almost embroidered quality to them. Her inspiration comes from botanical illustration, nature, decorative art, architecture and textile patterns which is truly evident in these beautiful decorative drawings.

Michael Van De Hams signature collaged dresses have come a long way since graduating from Central St Martins when he wowed the fashion set. For this collection the designer morphed different fabrications of printed and crushed organza, textured jacquards, metallic wool and gold lace appliquéd on to sheer jacquard. His inspiration came from Veronica Lake and the Ziegfeld Follies adding a touch of Hollywood glamour to his creations. This culminated in an array of sequins, glitter and gold that any girl would long for.
