Spring is finally here, and we know we’re not the only ones excited about its arrival. One of our favorite seasons, Spring brings with it warmer temperatures, outdoor adventures, and refreshed wardrobe options. And with the world around us seemingly suddenly bursting into bloom, how could we not be happy?!
We love drawing inspiration from beautiful botanicals and floaty fleurs – so lucky for us, floral prints are trending for Spring ‘18! We love how flower motifs can work for every style, whether you’re looking for something soft and romantic, bold and expressive, subdued and abstract, or playful and sweet.
Take a look at our Instagram and you’ll find our page dotted with fresh florals in a range of techniques. Among other techniques, Printfresh Studio is known for loose, hand-painted watercolors. We love documenting the process!
In our recent Spring ’18 trend report, we’ve highlighted a few different flower-oriented techniques currently trending on runways and in the market. One of our favorites is a trend we’ve dubbed Vibrant Garden:
The Vibrant Garden trend is all about capturing the joy of springtime in the garden.
Gorgeous blooms are rendered into loose and stylized gestures, with an emphasis on artistic expression that is still always recognizably floral. Even embellished and embroidered elements are playful and abstracted, effortlessly relating back to hand-painted motifs.
Color palette is a key component to this trend, and these prints showcase a range of vibrant hues. Feminine brights are often paired with bold pops of red, and foliage coloring ranges from reality-inspired mints and teals to imaginative blues.
At Printfresh Studio, we love using watercolor techniques to achieve this look, drawing inspiration from bold, blooming poppies and romantic roses. In addition to watercolors, our artists tend to work with mixed-media techniques, layering watered down gouache and super saturated inks to add depth to paintings.
It’s always exciting to take a peek at what our designers are working on, and get a glimpse at the unique way in which each of them interprets a trend.
