{NYFW trending topic} the new prints...

The Fall 2011 NYFW runways were full of new and twisted prints to add a little punch to your cold-weather wardrobe. Marc Jacobs has ushered in the return of the polka dot in fitted '40s silhouettes, and the pattern was echoed in a loose maxi dress at L.A.M.B. (Top far left and right, respectively.) Jil Sander and Marc by Marc Jacobs showed a new animal print, featuring whole animals like foxes, deer, owls, and lions. (Top inner left and right, respectively.) I have a feeling we will be seeing quite a few trickle-down versions of this imagery in H&M, Zara and the like very soon. Anna Sui showed her usual array of prints, but the poppy, colorful florals were my stand-out favorite. (Bottom left.) Lastly on my radar, leave it to Proenza Schouler to take tribal-influenced prints (that were starting to feel a bit played-out to me, honestly) and make them feel new again. (Bottom right.)
