On the Streets: Bountiful Prints vs Posh Blocks

The printed and color blocking styles have been the long-standing contenders… uh, we mean — trends, so far. We see that prints are evolving to either bolder or more cheery patterns. While, color blocking has been elevated to becoming the style strength and sometimes inspiration for a design. Check-out as these trends go back-to-back in the London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013, as reported by Frills and Thrills.

Bountiful Prints:

Peter Pilotto | Geometric prints zigzagged in abundance on this runway, at times even mismatched. Funky, right?

Micheal van der Ham | Art-inspired prints were layered in muted+sunshiny colors. This is what we call balance.

Erdem | Citrus, neon, and pastels made up the kaleidoscopic florals. You’ll surely get yourself some admiring attention if you’d walk on the streets in these.

Celebrity Sightings for Bountiful Prints | Poppy Delevingne, Kim Kardashian, Christa Allen, and Hailee Steinfeld made street-wear look high-fashion with abstract prints.

Posh Blocks:

Roksanda Ilincic | The play on color blocks gave these pieces their story, sometimes even seeming like geometric patterns if looked at as a whole. But the clean lines and simplistic combinations made these designs perfect for posh stylistas.

Burberry Prorsum | Jewel and berry colors made-up this parade. The satin and silk materials helped in making the powerful statement because of their luster effect.

Paul Smith | Color-blocking with manly spice makes this runway an awesome evolution of the trend. Clean-cut masculine tailoring and paneled colors were mixed in with some lace and chiffon to give color-blocking a new taste.

Celebrity Sightings for Posh Blocks | Alexa Chung, MissesDressy.com favourites Emma Stone, Olivia Palermo, and Diane Kruger looked modish and fresh in structured bright color-blocks.
