As per usual by the time I get around to posting this it is likely to be Wednesday morning not Tuesday, I really need to start getting into the habit of working on blog posts a day in advance as opposed to cram typing post work, but one hurdle at a time- it's enough of a struggle to get into a routine of posting daily.
Anyway today's Tuesday trend is a print trend for Sprint/Summer 2015 which I anticipate will become extremely popular with both the high end and the high street designers.
The intricacy of Islamic geometry has been a constant source of inspiration for print designers, satisfying our western obsession of things we deem 'exotic' and 'exciting'. In the recent Autumn/Winter 2014 catwalks designers such as KTZ, Mara Hoffman, Temperley and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi(among others) introduced Islamic tile designs into the prints in their collections. By reducing the colour palettes to basic one colour prints, mono printing being a particular favourite, the designers adapted the tile designs to fit in with the Autumnal colour palettes.

Despite its debut on the Autumn/Winter catwalks, this print trend is perfect for the Spring/Summer season. With it's fresh turquoise/blue tones against burnt oranges,sunshine yellows and it's trademark blue and red colour combining, this trend whisks us away to warmer climates. Although the Cruise/Resort collections for 2015 are still in progress, we can already see indications that this trend might be one to watch out for when the Spring/Summer 2015 collections are revealed in September. With global fashion institutions like Chanel championing this trend, there is no doubt about it gaining popularity.
