Mirror, Mirror: Print direction for Cruise/Resort 12

Peruse 70s-era inspirations behind the recent mirrored print trend for resort/cruise 2012, straight from the Stylesight vintage library.

Cruise/Resort 12, L to R: Givenchy, Peter Pilotto, Preen, Stella McCartney, Thakoon

Amongst the trends to emerge during the Resort/Cruise 12 collections, mirrored prints are probably amongst the Vault’s favorites.  Everyone from Givenchy to Stella McCartney incorporated mirrored images into their collections, conjuring visions of 70s-era baroque prints, scarf dresses, tropical florals, and many a Pucci reverie.  Below, a small visual catalogue of mirrored pieces from the Stylesight vintage library, a source of infinite inspiration and much lusting after the past.
