This season, the art of fashion has collided with the art of painting. Designers have whipped out their paint brushes and created beautiful prints that will make you look pretty as a picture.
The painterly style is having a moment in Resort 2015 collections by Sportmax, Escada, Christian Dior, Botega Veneta and Prabal Gurung. Bold brush strokes, strategically placed splodges and dripping ink stains are appearing on everything from dresses, trousers and skirts to shoes, belts and accessories. No item of clothing has been spared from this bold new trend.
There is more than one way to wear painterly prints. If you’re feeling brave, turn your body into a canvas and wear the trend from head-to-toe. Matching prints creates an all-over effect that will make you look styled to precision. Look to Sportmax for inspiration of how to wear this trend all over.
Not a fan of looking too matchy-matchy? Let your imagination run wild by pairing clashing prints. Soft painterly prints are easy to mix and match as they clash for all the right reasons.
This artistic new trend is the perfect way to add a bit of art to your wardrobe. Deck yourself out in one of these painterly pieces and you’ll instantly look like you’ve just stepped out of the Louvre.
