We Want More: Prints

We know we have already posted much about Prints and Patterns (Link here: https://afterthebloom.wordpress.com/2013/02/16/paradise-in-print/).

And let’s face it–they aren’t the NEWEST trend. But how could we stop loving those bodacious designs? B couldn’t even leave these statement-making material at home during her trip to Taiwan. See B’s personal take on wild leopard prints in funky turquoise.

Honestly, who cares if prints are no longer à la mode? We feed on them as staples.

Tribute to Trio: Black White Blue

Think tender waves, white convertible and dark gin bottles in the sand. You get summer.

Think clear sky, soft snow and inky branches. You get winter.

Forgive us for stealing the Estonian flag for our post; black, white and blue are just colors we can’t take our hands off. These simple colors are so classy that they can fit into almost anything and escalate the style by levels.

CÉLINE puts these hues together and gives us the new simple classic. Hats off to Phoebe Philo.
