NYFW: Day 4/5: Printed perfection with DvF, DKNY & Thakoon

Yeah, yeah we’re well aware we’ve done a blog post on floral prints earlier in the fashion week, but let’s face it, when there’s spring,
there’s flowers (and other patterns too).

Princess of Print Diane von Furstenberg did not disappoint with a stunning array of florals and paint spattered pieces. We’re particularly in love with the Asian-inspired florals which also have a slightly 60s feel to them too- not in a dodgy wallpaper way!

A riot of colour and pattern

A dream in tangerine - surely one of THE colours for Spring?

A little less ready-to-wear (unless you work in a sunglasses shop) was Thakoon’s menagerie of seriously loud clashing prints and colours. Satin turquoise with tangerine embroidery, candyfloss hair, paisley, fitted floral blazers, symmetrical patterns and cowboy-like hats all figured – sometimes on the same piece of clothing. One for the seriously brave.

Makes DvF's array of patterns look tame!

Country and Western in a paint factory?

In another print mash-up DKNY showed off horizontal striped maxi dresses, paint spattered monochrome leggings and pinks so sweet they’d give you a toothache- all with a 70s twist. We love the super flattering floppy hats and playful use of texture to make colour blocking more interesting and feminine – sequins *squee!*

If Jackson Pollock did clothing

Pink perfection (in love with the sequined skirt and hat!)

Dig out your stripy maxi dress and play with the hem line?
