TRENDS: WATERCOLOUR WONDERLAND
Prints are down-right tough, stick to a stripe or spot and it’s smooth sailing, choose a floral that’s not quite on-point and it could well sit on the rack all season long, only to find it’s true mate at the bottom of a bargain bin at a warehouse sale. This would explain why many designers approach prints with an air of hesitation and who can blame them really they’re risky!
One French design house that got the print memo really right for Spring Summer 2018 is Lemaire. Designers Christophe Lemaire and Sarah-Linh Tran presented an incredible painterly watercolour print, in two highly commercial colour ways, that would feel right at home in any wardrobe.
