Trend: Walk the Line

The art beat goes on with this season’s prints and patterns.


Fashion and decor make for easy bedfellows. And while the interior world has long been influenced by Sol LeWitt, it appears that many of the resort collections are taking after the artist’s simple geometrics too. Stripes turned wayward and angled at Alexander McQueen, and grid patterns at Giorgio Armani offered visual intrigue in two-tone colors. Jonathan Saunders even managed to make a graph-paper inspiration sexy with a highlighter-accented bralette.
