Mix matching colors, fabrics and playing fusion with silhouettes is a common story. But what becomes experimental is when you try to throw a print on another print. Yes, I am talking about the crazy amalgamation of say, Houndstooth over Gingham print. How’s that for an inspiration?
Having been following up on French Connection India collection for over 3 years now, I had to checkout their SS’14 collection too. Although, a little late from the general standards of featuring an SS’13 collection (now that the monsoon is coming), I had to share what I found in French Connection India’s SS’14 collection.
Being an international brand, French Connection makes sure to include the current trend in their collection, like always! Just like last year’s SS’13 collection saw lots of neon and solid palette love, this year adapted the international runway trend of Print on Print.
Not just prints, but French Connection has showcased a line of breezy summer fabrics, quirky prints and a dash of glitter too. Take a look at the collection!

With a collection so artistic, I had to create a few looks with em! So much to choose, experiment and mix-match with, I had a great time putting up the following 4 looks for all my readers. Check them out.

Print on Print Rules
1. Always match the solid tones of two prints. Eg. A black print on white solid base will always go with a white print on a black solid base.
2. Neutral print goes with a colorful print.
3. Mix prints in similar color family.
4. Same patter can be matched in different scales/print sizes.
5. Add a solid element to break up the prints.
Now that you have enough reasons to try out this fun trend, go ahead and visit your nearest French Connection outlet soon.
