Prints and Graphics Trends Women SS/18 : Slow Futures

Check out the new prints and graphics trends that you will see on the SS/18 runways, incorporated in the Slow Futures Vision.

CURATED EDITORIAL PRINTS

Slow Futures develops the minimalist story, with a future informed by the past. Editorial graphics for S/S 18 mix paint and paper, photo and typography to create carefully curated prints with a sentimental sensibility.

Editorial graphics are updated with contemporary techniques such as photo splicing and masked or interrupted type. A nostalgic aesthetic is communicated through hand-rendered details and natural textures, while the essence remains minimal and delicately composed. A muted pastel palette refreshes the look for spring.

 

SILENT SHAPES PRINTS

The return to slow process and craftsmanship celebrates a stripped-back approach to design. Themes of raw minimalism and abstraction a big influence. Sculpted shapes inspire soft geometrics for spring, with subtle textures that offset sharp angular lines.

Less is more for these carefully curated prints. Focus on negative space and masking techniques to reveal leftover abstract shapes. Mix solid shapes with subtle watercolor textures and fine lines to transform geometrics into a softer state.

Prints and Graphics Trends Women SS/18 : Psychotropical

Check out the new prints and graphics trends that you will see on the SS/18 runways, incorporated in the Psychotropical Vision.

deep sea prints

Inky blotches, abstract shapes and painterly mark-makings imitate the enthralling skins of sea creatures. These psychedelic patterns become exaggerated and hyperreal tjanks to an intense and saturated color palette, juxtaposed against lush darks for glow-in-the dark effect. Scales vary from micro to macro for a renewed approach to the perennial favorite pattern.

hypnotic nights prints

For the high-summer drop, tones are more saturated and juxtaposed with lush darks fro a dramatic mood. An expressive brushstroke offers flora and fauna an abstract quality, achieved with oil pastels and lashing of vivid gouache. Outlines are bold and brash, paired with dizzying geometrics for a hypnotic feel.
