SEASON'S MOTIFS & DECORATIVE DESIGNS
Discover the patterns and prints chosen by buyers for spring summer 17 at Première Vision Designs during the Paris show this February 2016.
Above all, the spring summer season celebrates flowers!
A precise hand illustrates a sometimes slightly out-dated romanticism. Prickly herbariums and sweet colours,
frankly pop, flat, simplified and enlarged flowers,
accompanied by a more vegetal-style exoticism,
with foliage painted with generosity and liveliness.
Another highly requested direction evokes the inhabitants of these worlds with birds and animals of the forest, or everyday objects like fruits, candies and stylized characters.
Patterns are rather large, they move away from mini interpretations and cheerfully embrace highly colourful choices. Also noted was an increase in buyers’ choices for mixed motifs, different writing styles patched together, mixes of flowers and geometries with carefully studied placements.
Prickly herbaria and archival flowers, a re-appropriation of the classics, in somewhat faded and nicely blended tones. Romanticism is chosen in sugary sweet or dark, grating versions. Techniques range from the ultra precise, to fine watercolour brushstrokes, never photographic and highly drawn.
The pop universe continues to enchant, with colourful fruit panoplies and skilfully organised characters, neatly outlined, and sometimes in grating colours.
Pencils and felt markers step into these scenes, which often require a second look for a correct reading.
Choices focused on geometries mixed with flowers, graphic patches and mixes of motifs.
Recomposed boubous, cut and pasted elements and key shapes are juxtaposed with a striking freshness.
Jungles are inhabited by incongruous birds, foliage and plantings, drawn spontaneously or with precise contours.
There's always a certain liveliness to these expressions that attracted buyers and are enhanced with bold colours.
