For our women’s Summer collection, we are featuring a range of optimistic color driven prints. Key directives this season are colorful and cheerful African inspired geometrics, stylized flat graphic florals that have a hint of Hawaiian retro designs, and our tribal designs are inspired by Pima basket weavings and the textiles of Peru. Our Junior’s collection features giant paisley bohemian designs, faux-crochet looks, 70’s inspired linear florals, and retro stripes.
Budding trends for Spring/Summer 2017 that we are recommending run the full range of our extensive archive… We are especially excited to curate collections of florals, including tropicals echoing the feeling of Havana, beautiful ditsy florals and the ‘unfinished’ floral print with a sketched appearance. We are also inspired by geometrics that have unusual areas of density and Abstracts with a marble or camo feel. Finally, enjoy whimsical small scattered animal conversational prints!
The intricate designs capture a variety of inspirations for both fashion and interior design. Renelle Pettitt has a variety of styles; stark and moody designs reflect the city ethic. In opposition, fresh, light and floral motifs connote natural, travel inspired influences. The philosophy behind the brand has always been an emphasis on allowing individuals to create, and embrace their own unique style. In essence the sometimes over exaggerated designs act as a prompt for a more unconventional look. The ethic to create a range of eccentric, even seductive prints is obvious throughout alternating concepts Renelle’s work possesses. Renelle Pettitt > http://www.renellepettitt.com

The global textile event for North American fashion professionals closed its doors on 2 days of sustained activity, fruitful meetings and business discussions. Take a look at the January edition of Première Vision New York
The elaboration of these unique colors results from a series of international meetings, which are a PV specificity. Our partner spokespersons share their color intuitions and convictions with the PV fashion team, as well as their ideas about fibers, materials, handles, and aspects that will all contribute to the future fashion season.... They are recognized fashion and textile industry professionals from Portugal, Spain, England, Germany, Italy, Japan and of course France. The color range is born from the richness of these discussions, which the fashion team sums up and transmits first to exhibitors, later making the information available to fashion professionals.
