Folks, we’ve been buzzing about prints and patterns for a long time now and to be honest, we’re not anywhere near done. We simply just love ‘em and will not be satisified until we’ve talked about each and everyone of them. This week’s spotlight is therefor tropical patterns!
Tropical prints can be anything from flowers to plants, fruits or animals. The definiton is that they all can be found in tropical environments. The tropical patterns have been in and out of style the last decade and the latest tropical pattern that trended was the pineapple print. Pineapple went from just a fruit to be figured on any trendy blog and in all interior magazines. Soon the fruit took the jump to fabrics and the pineapple trend was a fact. Parallelly tropical patterns got a fresh start and was featured in an Adidas collection 2014. H&M took the tropical prints mainstream when they launced a set of clothing pieces feauturing palm leaves.
