Oooh, are you feeling it yet?
I sure am. 🍄
Mushroom prints and motifs have been an emerging trend since the Spring 2021 shows, but this season, many designers went all in, using mushrooms as their main inspiration in a variety of Spring 2022 collections.
Coming on the heels of other popular trends from the ‘70s like halter tops and flared pants, retro mushroom prints — from charming red toadstools to rainbow-hued psychedelic caps- are popping up all over the place, and I’m not mad about it. (As a matter of fact, I feel really, really good about it. Real good. 😉)
At Rodarte, mushrooms showed up on party-ready looks. The Mulleavy sisters presented two flowing dresses with balloon hemlines and flowing capes in pastel colors featuring hand-drawn multicolor fungi art created by their mother.
Meanwhile, one of my faves- Brandon Maxwell’s collection took party dressing to another level with mushroom shapes that featured women’s legs as stalks. For more casual
users dressers, Maxwell showed sweaters and T-shirts with mushroom prints, paired with metallic, disco-ready skirts and jackets, as well as psychedelic 70s prints.
Mushrooms are just the latest outpouring of fun, throwback prints that are definitely heightening my current style experience. The prints themselves are references to ’60s and ‘70s trends like cartoonish florals, cow prints, and undulating stripes, done in pastel and bright colors, and adorn many Y2K trends like low-rise flared bottoms, minidresses, and slinky, collared tops.
Definitely not for the shy styled type, but if you like to stand out from the crowd and create a statement- I HIGHLY recommend jumping on this trippy trend.
