Prints perfect

TEXT: NICOLA RACHEL COLYER  I  PRESS PHOTOS

Make a statement this summer in the season’s most attention-grabbing trend. From classic florals to logo mania, prints are taking on a new look with a ‘more is more’ approach. Pile them on abundantly, clashing or co-ordinating as you please; it’s time to have some fun.

While there are no rules to pairing up your prints this season, there are a couple of tricks that can help to pull your final look together. Contrasting scales are an easy way to pair two prints together and this shirt from Italian menswear brand Ganesh does just that with a subtle contrast when the sleeves are rolled up. Choose a colour from the shirt to inspire the rest of your outfit to keep things easy on the eye. €120 www.ganeshclothing.it (available at www.julesb.co.uk)

This paint-splattered T-shirt from French brand A.P.C is a fun and unexpected way to do prints. It will quite literally add a splash of colour to your trusted basics but try layering it underneath a floral shirt or pairing with statement shorts to really embody the over-the-top spirit of the trend. €90 www.apc.fr

In the world of print, stripes can be treated as a neutral, as they help to ground even the busiest of patterns – so you can’t go wrong with these slip-on trainers, no matter what you’re wearing. From classic looks to statement styles, they’ll be your go-to all summer long. €29.95 www.zara.com

Take a walk on the wild side with this tiger-emblazoned backpack. For the print-shy, accessories are an effortless way to dabble in the trend and will instantly elevate the most understated of looks. For the brave among you, the bold design is the perfect accompaniment for a full-scale printed get-up. €245 www.kenzo.com
