Vintage prints are the BIZ for Spring/Summer 2021.
It was about this time last year when I made a fashion prediction. Channeling my inner Nostradamus my post “Quarantine and the Resurgence of Vintage Fabrics” stated that we would see a HUGE influx of vintage inspired fabrics and prints this season.
.. And here we are, vintage prints EVERYWHERE!
With florals, surf and postcard prints in everything, it’s pretty obvious fashion is having a printastic love affair with days gone by.
Designers have given vintage florals a contemporary twist in the form of exploded and oversized blooms set on contrasting backgrounds. These new floral prints feature and illustrated retro quality. Think vintage drapery patterns.
It’s an overall nostalgic feel that could most definitely be the result of us all doing deep dives into our parents and grandparents closets over the past year. These quarantine vintage treasures set in motion a boom in not only vintage/thrift shopping but also deadstock fabrics and retro inspired prints.
Flowers aren’t the only thing getting a vintage makeover. Nostalgia for vacations (oh how we have missed those) is also a print prevalent theme through prints that harken back to 1950’s Hawaiian surf culture and chic Cote d’Azure vacations.
Whether it’s a retro tropical infusion or a refined floral vintage aesthetic these prints in light breezy fabrics are here to set the mood for Spring/Summer 2021 and it’s looking pretty sunny!
With the energy and lightness of the season in mind you can’t help but feel it when you put these pieces on.
