New Kids on The Block

February 20, 2014

Color blocking has become a staple in the fashion world. It seems contrasting sleeves or borders is as common lately as a polka dot.

Just when we were starting to feel a little color block fatigue set in, designers in London put a new spin on it, creating new ways to splice an old garment.

Princess Kate Middleton’s go to designer, Issa, took amorphous shapes reminiscent of childhood favorite “Colorforms.” Remember them?

Peter Pilotto is masterful in cutting and splicing prints. This season, his solid tones are worked together in contrast to form new and interesting patterns.
