The Red Balloon
Tribal print is dead, galaxy print is dying, and I have yet to see a suitable ink-blot print in a lower-end label. So what is next for the print-lovers of the world? Although polka dots and stripes consistently comprise lovely basics, they just don't have enough uumph to carry the prestigious title. So why not have balloon print take over?
Co/Te, an Italian design team highly focused on minimalism, showed the print in their s/s 12 collection. It worked to enliven the otherwise basic collections and provide a dose of much needed color and humor to the bleak colors and serious silhouettes.
