Summery Pattern-ery

Besides mixing colors, I love playing with pattern. When high temperatures are a factor, I tend to lean towards loose fitting garments and drape-y silhouettes. But that look can quickly get boring, which is why I like the idea of mixing interesting patterns in the place of more fitted and flattering shapes to spice things...

I am very attracted to bright, saturated colors… you know this. For that reason, the textile designs of Josef Frank caught my eye.
