This spring is all about print, but forget pretty florals and choose clashing tones or innovative geometries instead. At Céline, Phoebe Philo put a graphic spin on the classic stripe, with wide strips of colour and bright hem detailing; there were also bold, symmetrical shapes and mosaic detail. Missoni delivered a signature array of psychedelic prints and bright op art-inspired designs. Stella McCartney was as fresh as ever, pairing vibrant citrus patterns with block colour, while Prada went bananas on a fruit-inspired trend. Florals made a sneaking appearance too, with Cacharel playfully modernising its prints with abstract designs in acid brights. Versace went baroque with a fearless combination of curlicues, leopard print and bold geometrics, while Rochas’ Marco Zanini commissioned Swedish artist Slotts Barbro to design his prints, which spanned painterly cityscapes and flowers. It was a breath of fresh air in the midst of a minimalist era. §
