New York fashion week: Geometric prints, lines and polka dots!

Earlier this month, after a work shopping trip around London, I identified the popularity of the geometric trend. This has continued in New York fashion week with designers such as Tess Giberson and Jonathan Simkhai championing the juxtaposition of geometric shapes and lines.

Another extremely popular trend at New York fashion week was the usage of structural lines. This falls into place perfectly with Stylesight's 'creed' trend for SS14 (http://textilecandy.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/stylesights-trend-predictions-ss14.html) which was characterized by linear graphics, infinite lines and transparent layers.

Polka dot prints provided a softer print option to the linear and abstract geometric shape trends at New York. Varying in size, the most popular polka prints were in monochrome tones. Libertine and Oscar De La Renta have definitely worked this trend best,. They have both taken the traditional spot print and updated it by layering brightly coloured florals over the top. As you will see in my floral trend board, layering floral imagery over other prints was another popular catwalk trend.
