From the experts: The rainbow stripe Print
When SELECTED FEMME first presented their collection at the office, there were a number of pieces that caught the attention of the crowd and had us counting down the days until we could get our hands on our favorites. But the design that had everyone clamoring in excitement were the pieces with the rainbow stripe print. There’s something about this print that gets even the everyday all-black wearing ladies wanting to jump into a sea of rainbow. We sat down with the head designer for SELECTED FEMME, Åse, to talk the print and why it’s some stiff competition for even an all-black wardrobe.
“When we first came upon the print, we knew we had to have it. It’s one of those prints that even the girls who say they don’t wear print, want to wear.”
“It was McQueen back in his heyday, where he really played with this idea of rainbow, kaleidoscope imagery in his prints. This is along the same idea, but in a much more simple silhouette for the modern Scandinavian girl.”
“It’s interesting to think of the print as broken up fragments of an image. If you were to combine all the strips together, it would create this really beautiful photograph.”
