A+A Vision Prints & Patterns S/S2021

FROM THE EDITOR:
We are seeing a comeback of prints and patterns in fashion, invading all genders, especially in the summer season. There is an abundance of different prints to choose from, some delightful and light, others more visual and eccentric, but there is always space in our wardrobes for them, no matter what season! Pattern "clashing" may seem overwhelming, but it is the key to standing out and allowing you to create one's own style! Use them to brighten up the wardrobe and to bring energy to SS21. This season our inspirations come from different cultures and generations, from ancient greek to the vibes of Africa, from chid like artists to bigger than life personalities.

KEY THEMES FOR SS21

Greekology: starting in Ancient Greece, we fast forward to a contemporary reinterpretation of the Odysseus, where colors feel pre-digital but used in geometric patterns, giving us a sense of timeless elegance, Prints are mostly 2-or 3 tones inspired by symbols, astrology or mythological deities.
Key suggestions: Textured geometry, relief embroidery, graphic leaves, micro leopard

Friendly Nature: A close encounter with nature and all its wonders. Wildlife and landscapes from Africa and beyond are turned into graphic prints. From earthly natural tones to flashy psychedelic colors, prints are altered and enhanced by color variants.

Joyful: Today's complex world and stressful lifestyles, necessitates for a little bit of letting go and having some creative fun. Optimism, art, and freedom of expression become the tools that brighten and lighten up our day.

Key suggestions: Naif & childish flowers, flowery stripes, accumulation of flowers, mixing techniques.

Soft Haze: A soft and sentimental mood that depicts what romanticism means in the post-digital world. Aerial shapes and textures are refreshing, inspired more by design than fashion. A mix of delicately colored stripes, checks, and flowers that can also be mixed together.
