This season, Carmen Miranda inspired prints exploded on to the Catwalk (don’t know who Carmen Miranda is? I didn’t either until I typed her name into google images –http://tinyurl.com/43f5nt3 – ‘ohhh yeaaah that fruit-head lady!’)
Banana print was featured in PRADA’s 2011 spring/summer show (if you can’t tell already, I love PRADA.)
I came across a fashion illustration blog called www.gattobravo-miao.com, it’s so cute check it out. Here’s their interpretation of PRADA’s fruit prints:
Stella McCartney’s Spring/Summer collection featured zesty citrus fruits.
Fruit print is now on the high-street (: – here’s a few I like.
