Here at Polychrome, we offer the latest prints and trend reports to keep designers in the know and ready to plan ahead for the upcoming seasons.
Not to brag, but many of our predictions on trends and prints for Spring/Summer 2019 are marching down the runways this season! Take a peek below at some of our clairvoyant forecasts:
Original prints from left to right: Ornamental Lotus, Floral Vine, Fantasy Brocade
The romanticism of the Renaissance period has been a fascination for fashion houses of late. We have seen the trend carry through to beautiful scrolling motifs and florals reminiscent of tapestries and heraldry. Designers such as Paul & Joe as well as Alena Akhmadullina have had examples of this trend on their runways. Other motifs that were predicted for our "Renaissance" trend are Florentine tilework and woodland fauna.
Original prints from left to right: Scattered Stars, Geometry in Space, Starry Skies
For Spring 2019, bright colors in gradient are also going to be key. References to colorful 80's graphics as well as fanciful star strewn prints are right in line with our "Navel Gazer" trend forecast. Brands such as Altuzarra, Baum und Pferdgarten, and Elder Statesman have been showing pieces in line with this trend.
Picnic at Hanging Rock
Original prints from left to right: Leaves & Ferns, Meadow, Ferns
The full-on femininity of the late 70's/ early 80's is coming back into play in the form of that era's Victorian moment - high collared necklines, white eyelet linens, and long modest dresses in sweet patterns walked down various runways.
BY - Bonnie Young, A.P.C., and Alexander McQueen and many more showed looks in line with this trend, which is inspired by the dreamlike 70's cult film of the same title, "Picnic at Hanging Rock".
Original prints from left to right: Painted Dot, Wrapped Dot, Dripping Dot
Have the current runways had you seeing spots? You're not alone; the classic dot pattern continues to shine on runways from A.P.C. and Alessandra Rich as well as Carolina Herrera.
Check out how this motif is given a novelty spin by our designers for our "French Connection" trend.
Original prints from left to right: Tropical Reflection, Illustrated Citrus, Fractured Foliage
What would Spring be without a variety of tropical florals? The ones being shown on runways such as
Balmain, Etro, and Emilio Pucci have a distinct feel of our projected trend "Malibu Dreamin'". This trend has a nostalgic air of vintage postcards with muted brights and topical scenes as well as palms that are fractured as if seen through cut glass.
Wild at Heart
Original prints from left to right: Abstract Snakeskin, Snake Medallion, Snakeskin
If 2018 was the year of the leopard, 2019 is shaping up to be the year of the snake. Varieties of the reptilian pattern have been spotted all over the runways and it is also the pattern of choice for next year's handbags. This pattern was predicted in our trend "Wild at Heart", which we believe is the next iteration of the Western trend that will not die. Instead of true cowboy, though, this trend is pure rockabilly and bad-girl rebel. And so far, runways such as Versace, Kenzo, and Alexander Wang are corroborating our forecast.
