Pattern Textiles: summer 2017 is feminine, romantic and eclectic

Dreamy nostalgia is cut up and patchworked back together with a youthful spirit, playing with space and colour in contemporary ways. Bold, graphic imagery breaks through this romantic air with Mid Century, Mod and ’70’s geometrics. Wanderlust abounds with exotic inspiration from all corners of the earth. Tiles, scarf prints and borders mix with unusual elements for a fresh new boho look. Ladylike is prim and quirky. Delicate ditsies sit next to eccentric appliqué conversationals and furnishing fabric inspired prints. Romantic florals take on a grungy ’90’ edge, especially when teamed with our plaids. The Artist is in residence with soft abstract work, loose sketchy doodles, color block and collage reimagining familiar themes. Finally, sporty stripes and abstract geometric lines look to the future with clean precision.
