PRINT pick ‘n’ mix.

Prints are still going strong but after the animal print take-over last year, we’re ready for a change.

Diane Von Furtsenburg mixed up stylised spot prints on a sexy silhouette – this is a very wearable outfit as the print doesn’t swamp the model’s body.  The balance between flesh and print is just right and the belted waist pulls the whole look together.

Givenchy’s look harder to pull off but the black and white graphic-y tribal print would look great in a different shape.

Gwen Stefani’s label L.A.M.B. featured bright, crisscrossing primary colours against tartan and white.  I love the way the primary colours are slightly off – the red is more of a burgundy, the yellow is a  mustard shade and the blue is a bright cobalt.  Stefani looks great! Love her hair and red lippy.

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! Although I still haven’t been able to celebrate it yet 😛 (read previous post.)  Watch out tomorrow for some prints on the high street.  Any ideas or suggestions? let me know!
