Printed exuberance is running riot all over New York. It feels very strange in a city where the dwellers revere and fall to black so often to be confronted with such a cornucopia of prints. If other designers are ticking off a trend for trend’s sake, Duro Olowu, based in London, has been in this print mixing game for an absolute age. This time round, it was a combination of 50s Jamaican immigrants arriving into England and Renée Perle, the muse of photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue that brought about a bevy of girls sashaying in all manner of patterns mixed in a way that still made elegant sense. Florals, lames, leopards and stripes all jostled together in expert collages. These are clothes to be worn with a broad smile.
