Jacket Required x The Trends - Prints & Patterns

While spring/summer is usually bursting with prints and bright colours, it looked to be quite the contrary at Jacket Required for 2016, where collections were mostly muted and prints were utilised primarily on key pieces. In such cases, unique prints were created through various forms of fabrication by playing with denim or very old fabrics. Next season there may be spots of red and the usual shades of blue, but outside of pastel colours, that could be the extent of the colour spectrum.

“We name a lot of our styles after certain artists. The David Lynch shirt was created after looking at this old box of 200-year-old Japanese fabrics – it's a little secret,” says Danish brand Libertine-Libertine. Its collection, dubbed Transworld, features a core range of colours consisting of greens, blues, whites and reds, with an intention to keep it as simple as possible. The brand finds most of its inspiration from the arts and music scenes, combining this with archives of fabrics to create different textures with neutral tones. 

Eat Dust has continued its 70s inspiration for the spring/summer 2016 season, looking at graphic prints from brands such as Budweiser and various oil companies to create an all-over red and blue print capsule. “We were referring to early street style before it was considered street style, looking back at the skateboarding scene. You can pick anything from our rails and put it together to create totally different looks.” The brand utilised this raw principle by creating 60s and 70s prints on bull denim, all-over on hooded pullovers and subtly on linings of jeans.
