Pretty Prints for a Perfect Picture

I see lots of abstract symmetrical prints, in bright and cheerful colors. A trend that seems to be inspired by the 50s and 60s

JAPANESE STREETS usually doesn’t pay much attention to trends, we like to introduce the exceptional. But when an upcoming trend stares you in the eye, it doesn’t hurt to share.

I have noticed that quite a few independent designers working on the edges of the fashion industry are into abstract symmetrical prints that seem to hark back to the 50s and 60s. Usually bright and cheerful colors, often ones that oppose each other. This print trend is especially seen on shapeless cotton dresses.

Summer weather has just arrived in Tokyo, and these prints are just wonderful for a fun-filled picnic in the park.

Anybody else who is reminded of the Mod fashion of 1960s Carnaby Street? Twiggy and all that?
