This week we’ll finish up our feature of the latest prints and patterns from Paris, Milan, and London. Use Deb’s shots from Europe’s store windows to identify current pieces in your wardrobe as well as to track down new ones!
A CHALK-FULL SPRING WARDROBE
“Spring/summer ushers in a wide range of prints and solids colored in diffused, often blurred ‘pastels’ and neutrals. This chalky effect is best in stripings, faded florals, scroll and pasymetry, ikats, and space-dye knits. These versatile feminine patterns are ideal to assort with un-dyed linens, silks, and cottons as well as muted pastel versions of the same. Nude, chambray, blush, lemon-ice, menthe, and apricot work together to create an uber-ethereal yet contemporary look for the season.”
