Clothe Me In Prints


Random fashion fact of the week: I love printed clothes with a difference.
Clothes, whereby you can make up some stories of your own...



Mary Katrantzou

Do you love nature? Do you love flowers? Do you wish you were a punk rocker with flowers in your hair? No? Neither would I, to be honest. However, this dress shows that you don't have to be surrounded by fields of flowers. You can live in an apartment block and be surrounded by acres of grey, yet when you look at this Mary Katrantzou dress, you can be transported to your wildest dreams, all about flowers, of course. So, if your life is void of colour, you can a). go to style.com and look at Mary Katrantzou's Spring 2012 collection, b). buy a Mary Katrantzou dress (lucky you) or c). buy a bouquet of flowers. Don't forget the cellophane bow.

Manish Arora

Why did Manish Arora choose this print? Why? Because the print conveys an image of people having fun at some sort of festival. A hippy-esque festival, at that. Oooh, fun. Praise the Lord. Praise all you mad festival lovers out there. Praise Manish Arora. Amen.  

Versace

Ever wanted to swim underwater and witness (friendly) creatures of the sea with your own eyes? Imagine swimming serenely with your goggles and oxygen safely secure, when a). you run out of oxygen (disaster!) or b). a hungry shark discovers dinner (disaster!) or c). the most exotic thing you find in the depths of the water are a few bored looking fish (disaster!). Fear not, people. Instead of diving, you should go surfing. Versace's Spring 2012 collection is sea friendly. Look at the above outfit. What do you see? Starfish and seahorses. Underwater delight and you don't even need to get your hair wet. Versace style, perfecto!

You're such a great writer! I'm not a huge fan of multiple prints, I'm more of a less is more kind of girl I guess. But I do appreciate them, these are beautiful!

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I am in love with the color palettes of these prints! Hope you had a great weekend.

Mark Katrantzou is my fave of the moment, its got all the right craziness going on to make every single print on one item kind of go together awkwardly amazingly.
