By The Seaside Trend

Another take on the Nautical theme but with a more vintage look, think 1950's vintage summer Holiday.  Prints are  hand sketched with a vintage quirky feel taking inspiration from the seaside ie beach hut's, lighthouses, yachts, deckchairs and vintage postcards and maps.
see inspirational pics below.

Nautical update part 1

Hard to believe but it seems that the nautical trend is going to be still around next spring, I have been asked by the majority of customers to incorporate some kind of nautical inspired prints into the first phases of the spring collections.
The first take on the nautical trend is very much traditional nautical inspired but with mixing in paisley prints, bretton stripe's and trying to move slightly away from just red and navy colour pallets, the detail of the garments and the mix of prints give it a fresh feel, all over prints with then placements on top appeal to the younger market, below is some nautical inspiration and along with
some nautical inspired clothing from Tommy Hilfiger's SS13 collection

Floral's are here to stay, large floral's, digital prints and unusual  placements are key for next spring summer. seen below floral stripe trouser at  Etro's spring summer 13 catwalks. I love it!!
