Earlier this month, the Printfresh Studio and PF Vintage teams traveled to Paris for Premiere Vision. We had a great time showing our latest designs and exploring the city! Today we’re sharing a quick recap of the trip, plus a peek at our exclusive Paris Shopping Report with our top picks for what’s currently trending in-store.

We asked our team to share some of their favorite parts of the trip. Here’s what they had to say:

"We love Premiere Vision Paris because we get to see our favorite European clients and meet new ones! I also love going to Galleries Lafayette - it’s such a beautiful store and there’s a gorgeous view of Paris from the roof."

- Katie


"My favorite store was Merci - they had awesome home goods and clothes. I bought a shirt that has a little embroidered John Lennon face on the front!"

- Leah


I loved Pigalle, which is a hip and trendy neighborhood in Paris. It’s known for its night scene and has inspired one of my favorite menswear fashion houses, aptly named Pigalle Paris!

- Julia

 

When we weren’t in the booth at PV, we did some trend research in stores around the city. Read on for highlights from our Paris Shopping Report, and download the full report here.

First up - Quirky Tropicals

Flat, colorful motifs mixed with critters and fruit make a playful statement. We’re also loving hand-painted and embroidered approaches to this trend, both of which offer fun dimension and texture.

Next, we found some gorgeous floral inspiration: Retro Florals

Vintage-inspired florals have been a popular request for our design team, and we love creating them. Delicate black linework and polka dots or stripes in the background add a cute graphic element, and palettes range from neutrals with a pop of color to lush brights and pastels.

Feline motifs, whether small or extra-large, scream Hear Me Roar

We’re especially loving lions, tigers, and leopards mixed in with florals and foliage, which can add a fun hidden touch to the design.  Ranging from simple and graphic to lush botanical illustrations, these conversational prints are a great offering across many markets.
