Season-to-season, colour blocking has remained one of the key print trends for both menswear and womenswear. With the ability to execute a minimal aesthetic whilst maintaining a strong sense of pattern direction, it’s clear to understand why this trend continues to inspire. As it develops into the Spring/Summer 2017 season, we see designers experiment with proportion play and unconventional placements to enhance its statement appeal.
