I am sure if you have been working in the textile design industry, you will have produced your fair share of the popular V shaped pattern known as the Chevron stripe. I am sorry friends, we are still seeing this pattern on the runways. Therefore i think it is here to stay as a staple for mass market design, at least for a few more seasons. However the classic chevron has had a bit of a face lift and can now be seen in all kinds of iteration, be it fur or mini black and white herringbones. I have found a few good examples that mix up the iconic pattern and add some freshness. Play on!
The world cup starts this week hence the predicted influx of brightly colored paraphernalia has hit the stores. The florescent colors that have been mass market have now shifted in to more tropical fruity brights . These work perfectly for the Brazilian World Cup. I am also happy to see that a large percentage of these products have pattern occurring too.
The last 2 years camping and road trips have been the top trending activities of the summer. This year surfing has been gaining popularity. Check out these boards! If you're in the market why not buy one with a pattern that expresses your charactor.
