tye & die
A logical continuation of the neo-hippie trend that we mentioned last year, prints are rubbing off in all directions this spring.
The tie and dye is reminiscent of the 60s and 70s and the emblem of a rebellious generation taken up thirty years later by the acid electro movement. More than a desire for displayed rebellion, the craze for this print would evoke more the current attraction for ancestral craft techniques that we reclaim in a slow and ecological approach.
The textiles are therefore inspired by African, Indian or Japanese Shibori ethnic prints. Unlike past years, when print was colored in bright colors out of provocation, at the start of the 21st century, calm and gentleness are in order at a time when the world is racing.
Dresses, shorts, swimsuits, sportswear, home accessories, adopt this season the psychedelic pattern in powdery variations ranging from salmon pink to celadon green.
