Skins, Spots and Mark Making

Question:

When is a skin not a skin, or an animal a non animal or a spot a mark?

Answer:

Frankly, heavens knows but when in doubt it is probably a non print print.

Conclusion:

A print that is not a true skin, spot nor flower, as she has so many of these already. The design must go with everything in her wardrobe and require minimal consideration before purchase.

Vague, we know but here are our takes on this conundrum.

Plaid and Tartan

Plaid is always a great go to in the autumn/winter. It can be a way of injecting colour and texture into an outfit. They don’t have to be woven. They can be recreated digitally as we showed you the other week with our Sublitex design.

Below is a colourful collection of plaids and tartans that we have found in the shops and on the runways. From high end to high street; the ultimate classic A/W trend.

A more spring feel from Harerra. Bight colours with lots of white in the plaid makes it a great option for spring.
