Behind the Print: Cabana Bright

This season, we are so excited about the new ‘Cabana Bright’ print! We turned to our team leader, Gail, to get a few more details behind the design:

How would you describe Cabana Bright?

It is a bold, artistic design comprised of oversized marker sketched florals in vibrant blues, pinks and yellows that come together for the perfect sunny season print.

 

What was the trend inspiration?

“Graphic Flora”

 

FP is all about COLOR! How many color options in this print?

There are ten different color ways. This is where the unique quality of garment dye comes in – from white to moonlight it can look like a completely different print!

 

And how many styles feature Cabana Bright?

The collection includes twelve different styles: 3 tops, 3 dresses, 3 plus size options, a skirt, scarf, and girls dress.

What are some things to consider when designing and introducing a new print?

Scale, color, motif – and what do we need in the collection. Also, making sure it fits with the existing collection and has its own personality.

 

What is a favorite element in the design process?

It’s so amazing to see a bright print over-dyed in white looks completely different when over-dyed in darker colors.

 

FP has so many prints, how does the team narrow down what is produced?

It’s a balance. We have to consider how many white prints, how many multi color, and what are the motifs that we want to represent. A lot of thought and review goes into making sure our collection has the right balance.

 

Any other fun details to note?

What a fun print this was to design! We love the large scale with the bright and happy hues. Plus, it has a beautiful component of light grey to balance and ground it.

 

We hope you all love the Cabana Bright print as much as we do!
