January Stripes

Summer Preview

Solid stripes are one of those patterns that behave almost like a neutral, and as such they are plentiful in the spring 2019 collections. There is mixture of diagonal, horizontal, and vertical stripes gracing all kinds of piece.
This January the stripe is presented on poplin for blouses and dresses that play with optical effects, bias, unstructured graphics. A classic for jumpers, which do not necessarily represent the peak of the trend but help to reinforce it.
Analyses reveal that stripes are quantitatively the second most common pattern in collections just after flowers, and well before checks and animal print.
