THE TREND

Seeing Spots (2)

The truly classic pattern that never goes out of style


From Minnie Mouse to Priyanka Chopra, polka dots have been a popular motif for decades. Meanwhile, on the runway we’re seeing many designers embrace the dotted look through little touches in accessories or full-blown head-to-toe ensembles. The reason for seeing spots? Because polka dots aren’t a trend, they’re a timeless print that will never go out of style. Get the look below:

THE MOOD

Butterfly Mood Board - Tastemaker Status

BUTTERFLIES

These amazing insects have always fascinated the public with their wide array of colors, patterns, and shapes, and fashion designers are no exception. As a matter of fact, butterflies have been gracing the runway periodically for years now, from Elsa Schiaparelli’s butterfly adorned blazer and hat in 1947, to Thierry Mugler’s butterfly-winged gown in 1997, to Alexander McQueen’s butterfly infested headgear in 2008. Thanks to the coming of fashion-consumer age of millennials, who grew up with Lisa Frank’s rainbow-colored world, we are seeing a resurgence of 90’s fads which includes the butterfly and all its glory.

 

Runway - Butterfly Fashion

 


Butterfly Palette

The butterfly trend gets a update with bold shades of black and a new sophisticated-take on rainbow brights. Pale shades of pink, purple, and green can stand out on their own or tone-down with deep, grounding shades of blue and black.

Butterfly Colors

 


Butterfly Texture

Between beautiful colors, luminescent textures, and loose, vivid patterns, there is plenty of inspiration to be drawn from butterflies for fabrication. Try metallic brocades, watercolor-patterned chiffons, and vibrant-hued silks to get that butterfly look.

THE MOOD

Utility Mood Board - Tastemaker Status

UTILITY - Tastemaker Status

 

As seen on the runways of Hermes and Giambattista Valli (to name a few), the utility trend is already popping up in your local retail store. This trend has been seen on the runways though jumpers or boiler suits, the garment inspired by coal-fire boiler maintenance men as early as the late 1920’s. The utility aesthetic can also be seen through thoughtful details such as belts, buckles, and drawstrings.

 

Utility Trend - Tastemaker Status

 


PALETTE

Monochromatic neutrals are the primary color palette for the utility look, ranging from army green, khaki, to off-white. Think uniformed-professions, such as camouflage green in the military or even a throw-back to the crisp white jumpsuit of the milk-man.

TEXTURES

Fabrication relies on sturdier weights and a mix of smooth and coarse textures. To fit with the utility aesthetic, heavy cotton-twills and linens are the way to give that masculine but crisp feel.
