While it could be a tad premature to call out a trend just as soon as the men’s shows have come to an end, there’s just no telling when something is going to pop out at you, and pop the Spring 2015 runways did. Catching our eye in collections including Versace, Raf Simons, Kenzo and Moschino were bold, colorful, graphic patterns and images on everything from leather jackets to knitwear. While graphics of all shapes and sizes have by now asserted themselves as a go-to for the fashion set thanks in no small part to Riccardo Tisci’s highly collectible t-shirts for Givenchy, what sets these patterns, prints and images apart and made them feel particularly fresh was their geometric, almost 2-D quality. Relying more on striking shapes and patchwork or intarsia techniques to create the designs rather than the more detailed photo prints that have become commonplace, pieces like Alexander McQueen’s kabuki makeup-inspired button down, Kenzo’s “Les Miserables” sweater or DSquared’s fluorescent tri-color leather jacket brought to mind everything from woodblock printing to Constructivism and Suprematism, with a hint of Andy Warhol-esque silkscreens thrown in for good measure. We think you’ll agree that the only thing not to like about this trend taking shape is that you can’t wear it right away.
