Abstract art breaks away from traditional art representations of physical objects, using an unusual mixture of shape, form and colour. The trend was popular in the twentieth century, and abstract art broke away from the norm of recognizable images to bold and bright representations of objects in a completely new light. Abstract art and prints transitioned into the fashion world, and is still used in collections today by some of the world’s best designers. We have compiled a mix of our top items that have a fabulous mix of weird and wonderful abstract prints on dresses, sweatshirts, shorts and leggings.
Abstract art looks awesome printed on simple, neutral backgrounds as seen here with our selection of girl’s dresses. MSGM use a classic shift dress in plain white to allow the abstract bird illustration made up of blocks of colour really pop. Fun & Fun use the same method, making this plain t-shirt dress come alive with a wacky mix of eyes, lips, nails and patterns to the front. Cavalli use its hem and lovely trim along the shoulders to add a hint of abstract pattern to this lovely skater dress.
Abstract art is more intriguing than ever, we love the story this Fun & Fun sweatshirt paints through the lovely mix of exotic colours, shapes, and girl illustration. Kenzo use an oriental symbol print of the eye talisman on a bright pink background which is artsy and captivating. For the boys fashion, they use contrast colour sleeves and random selection of shapes and logos for a kooky abstract mix.
Tropical prints have been a fashion favourite over the current Spring/Summer collections, and many designers have split these prints into abstract rather than using realistic designs on their garments. In both boys and girls collections, Little Marc Jacobs have displayed an exciting and unusual jungle themed print of palm leaves, fruit and animals in deep blue and dark greens. Billieblush also uses this theme, with a crazy colourful mix of abstract art printed onto items such as this lovely skater skirt. If you look carefully you can see birds, flowers, trees and even rabbits!
Prints take on a whole new dimension with our amazing collection of abstract printed leggings at Kids Cavern. Each designer uses clashing colours in a mix of fruity orange, mint green, zesty yellow and cool blue. Fun & Fun uses a fluid yet beautiful abstract illustration of flowers, while MSGM’s print is a clean cut chaos of shapes and lines which makes the leggings really stand out. Kenzo use striking pouncing tiger illustration all over for a perfect abstract pattern.
