Spring/summer trends are always linked to florals and tropical prints. That’s something that people like Miranda Priestly would’ve rolled her eyes at—if she were a real person that is.
Runways, however, gave us a fun trend to play with: “tutti frutti.” If you’ve been paying close attention, pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Altuzarra, and Charlotte Olympia’s S/S ’17 collections were adorned with fruit prints. From pineapple dresses to banana clutches, it’s like high-fashion’s version of the humble fruit cocktail.
