Geometric Prints Taking Shape

Normally left to the kaleidoscopic mind of Pucci, geometric shapes have been appearing on more and more pieces.  Some retailers (like Topshop) have begun to take the geometric trend to the next step and created a bag in the actual shape.

I’m a bit hesitant towards getting on this bandwagon.  It seems to me that this 60s inspired look can get very busy looking very fast, and it seems like it could be nearly headache inducing to look at after too long.

My word of caution would be to chose one shape-heavy piece, and let it lead the visual parade.  Don’t try to over complicate with any other pieces that fight for attention; your look will become far too overpowering.  Keep things simple!

Very good words of caution. You don’t want people walking around here looking like optical illusions
