MANHATTAN — As the summer season draws to a close and the fashion flock (including Street Chic) braces for the start of Fashion Week on Thursday, Sept. 5, we have noticed a flurry of engaging prints and interesting photo icon T-shirts hitting the street.
Graphic print trends are always morphing and recurring in a variety of forms, however New York's late summer streets are highlighting gray, off-white and black. We spotted whimsical large-scale single graphics as well as classic black and white photographs from the 1950s and 1980s. Textual graphics were spotted on dark denim. The font was reminiscent of the late haute-streetwear designer Stephen Sprouse, calling to mind his work for Louis Vuitton in 2001.
There were pops of green, yellow and red dots and medallion geo-prints on a varsity jacket, and a look from Jean Paul Gaultier’s collaboration with Target from 2010.
