AW12 REPORT: new geometrics

Did I mention that I had a ticket for Basso & Brooke’s show and couldn’t go? GUTTED. Especially when I saw what I had missed up close and in detail. The guys have been championing print-clash forever, and right now the fashion world are seeing their way of looking at things. Building on SS12’s obsession with print-on-print, Fall’s offering collages the new graphic geometric. Think houndstooth beside waffle, diamond beside hexagon, squares beside stripes. It’s mostly mid-scale, so that it’s large enough to be seen, but small enough to show a decent amount of repeats – these prints want you to know that they are there. It’s monochromes, purples, blues and reds. It’s really interesting brocades and quilting, creating surface texture in neoprenes and lurex. It’s reminiscent of men’s scarves and questionable ’60’s interiors. It’s graphic, and loud, and definitely not for the faint hearted.

On another note, I have been making moodboards. Here’s one I made earlier.
