Geos are officially back and in a BIG way. Many of our favorite New York designers showcased Oversized Geometric prints this runway season. DKNY and Ostwald focused on clean and symmetrically arranged shapes while Tory Burch and Lela Rose paid more attention to bold lines and asymmetry. No matter which way you interpret this graphic trend it is sure to turn some heads!

While Oversized Geometrics made a bold statement on the runways, Shrunken Geos also played a huge role. To add more interest to these simple shapes and tiny repeats many designers pieced two different color ways or scales together for a very sleek look. You can't go wrong with this chic showstopper.

Abstract texture prints have been huge these last few seasons and Spring 2015 will be no exception. Many designers stuck to white grounds and muted palettes but these Bold Strokes are anything but boring! Tibi and Donna Karan used large textured brush stroke placements to add an edge to their feminine dresses while Jason Wu and Zoe Jordan opted for smaller all over texture to complement their more structured garments.

Unlike the neutral coloring of Bold Strokes, Refined Graffiti turns the volume up a few notches with bright and beautiful hues. These loud urban prints elevate your typical street graffiti; making it fun while still keeping a level of sophistication. Colorful paint splatters and smudges were popular at Marissa Web and Sachin & Babi where Donna Karan and Dion Lee took a more mixed media approach with torn shapes, mixed textures, and prints.  

Stay tuned next week for our next installment of Runway in Review and be sure to check out our Spring 2015 Pinterest Board for all of the best prints on the runways (so far)
