Prints are here to stay

Doing trunk shows can be a pride swallowing experience, let me tell you!  For the most part it's fun, but there are always a few people who don't like what you show them, and who feel they really want to share how much they don't like it.  This time someone said "I just don't do prints, they are so eighties" - it's always hard to reply when you are surrounded by a sea of colorful tops and dresses in November of 2014...  But it did make me think about what's out there right now in terms of prints.  The coolest designer of them all, Phoebe Philo, is doing prints for Céline Spring 2014.  Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy is even putting flower prints on shoes.  And prints share the spotlight with colorful jewelry in a really beautiful editorial in December US Vogue.  So I think they are here to stay.
