It’s all about the geo!

Foulards from Marni

While we are no where near ready to start buying our Spring Summer wardrobes yet, we are starting to think about what looks we might be going for. If pastels are not dinging your dong and you are not afraid to make a statement with pattern and colour, then these bold geometric prints might be just the thing. This look is all about mixing differents scales of prints and wearing clashing patterns in complimentary colours. 

The Marni Spring collection combines geometric, tile and foulard prints with spots and stripes in brights and black and white. Jewellery, bags and footwear also feature complimentary, yet clashing prints and pattern. 

Milly, Spring Summer collection

The patterned bottom is all important to make this look work. Printed narrow leg trousers or pencil skirts, worn with different scale geo or engineered stripe tops are key. If you are really bold you could add a patterned coat. Think Iris Apfel on acid! 

The Spring Summer collection from Milly sums this look up perfectly. The range was inspired by the Sonia Delaunay exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt museum and is not for the faint hearted. 

Jonathan Saunders, Pre Fall collection

Jonathan Saunders showed geos in his recent Pre Fall collection and featured some more subtle colour combinations, which could be slightly more wearable. We love the skirts worn with vintage style jumpers.

If you are looking at these thinking ‘has she actually gone completely mad’, you could just try a pair of patterned trousers or a pencil skirt and keep everything else plain. But never say never! You may have said that about coloured trousers, and don’t tell me you’re not even a little bit tempted by all those lovely spring colours in the shops?

  • I’ve been getting a bit braver with print lately – and I wouldn’t say no to that Marni dress or Milly coat!

    I’ve always been a bit of a print phobic, I admire them just not able to see them on me, but the Jonathan Saunders skirts and the Marni dresses may just change my mind!
