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 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.
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!*
