At Bags of Love, we are always led by the imagination and creativity of our customers.

As well as supplying hundreds of handmade photo gifts, which our customers love personalising with special photos of friends and loved ones, we also have a rather fabulous, expanding customised apparel and homeware range.

These items in particular – personalised clothing, personalised cushions, photo blankets, personalised bags etc – are favourites among our artistic and designer clients. We see some incredible original designs being uploaded onto our system, which we then print onto the products of their choice. This allows them to actually wear or style their home in their own fashionable designs.

With spring very almost here, we are starting to see some incredible new season designs coming in – perfect for injecting a dose of new season style into homes and wardrobes. This has inspired us to get creative with our own wardrobes, interiors and products! In case you are looking to add some new and exciting spring and summer inspired décor to your home, or your wardrobe, for a fraction of the price of designer homeware or fashion, then just follow our handy guide to SS15 print trends!

SS15 Print Trends

 Welcome to SS15 at Bags of Love

It’s a new season, so it is a new start. When it comes to what is hot in the world of fashion, print and interiors, designers were looking to the 1970’s for inspiration, statement warrior accessories and hippie chic. Imagine lava lamps as prints and inject your home and wardrobe with a ’70’s time warp. Designers such as Tommy Hilfiger and Henry Holland were leading the way on the catwalk with retro festival fashion inspired designs. Don’t forget to clash those florals for a big thumbs up!

Military was also a big theme when it came to the SS15 catwalks. Utility chic is a popular trend season after season, and this year, this wearable trend was given a slightly glitzy make over by Rodarte and Ralph Lauren. Work this trend in your home by opting for shades in khaki and beige, with glam touches of glitter and sparkle.

Tulle was BIG on the catwalks, and our beautiful print on Paris Chiffon fabric makes a great alternative to this stunning material. Opt for sugary sweet colours and add flashes of bolder hues to really adopt this trend. The other fabric to watch for is suede and our Suede Vision fabric is ideal to rock this hot trend. Choose pastel colours and prints to bring this trend to life in your wardrobe or your home.

Get ready to be a mermaid this season! Designers such as Valentino and Rodarte produced drool-worthy prints and appliqués, which paid homage to underwater adventures. Our print on chiffon fabric would work wonders with this stunning trend – opt for hints of blue and green and every shade in between and add touches of shells, waves and mystical sea creatures.

Power flowers are back for SS15! Vivid floral prints can be worn in your clothing, accessories and shown off in your home. The more vivid and bold – the better! Marni and Fendi had fun with petals this season. Don’t be afraid to clash!

Show off those shoulders! Forget crop tops, this year, showing off your shoulders and décolletage was big news for Balenciaga and Topshop Unique. Our beautiful Personalised Bodysuit is the perfect way to work this trend in an easy and wearable way. Create a design of bold flowers and you have 2 trends in 1!

The power of pattern and print are so important for home and interior trends. Bold, striking patterns and tropical elements work well to add touches of vibrancy to the home. Look for tropical birds, exotic plants and flowers and dream like beach destinations. These themes would work beautifully on our Personalised Cushions and Photo Blankets and Throws, to add splashes of pattern around the home.

We hope we have been able to inspire you with some ideas of how to create a fresh and exciting new look this spring and summer. Have fun designing your perfect trend worthy prints and then choose from our huge range of personalised photo gifts, to display them on. Whatever your style, you can be sure that you will find something you will fall in love with, to make your wardrobe and your home stand out this season.
