Drawing on inspiration from the ongoing digital print phenomenon, the photo print trend is an innovative way designers are creating wearable artwork. For Spring 2013, designers showcased clothing emblazoned with oversized photographs that are both visually striking and interesting. Some of these images were of beautiful landscapes and nature scenes, but others featured human bodies and faces adding something different to a downtown look.

When considering this trend, one should look no further than Proenza Schouler. Citing Tumblr as an inspiration for the collection, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez showed skirts and dresses printed with artsy pool scenes and forest imagery by artist Gerhard Richter. By using prints that are so complex and intricate, the duo has created designs that are so detailed they require more than just a passing glance.

Other designers, such as the always-provocative Jeremy Scott, proved that even the human face in and of itself can be trendy. Scott showed a one-piece swimsuit with a woman’s face printed across it. While this look is likely not for everyone, it’s sure to please Scott’s loyal fans. Furthermore, Christopher Kane unleashed his inner mad scientist with a Frankenstein-inspired collection that included the infamous monster’s face on T-shirts. Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated uptown look, or a bold and surreal interpretation, the season’s photo print trend is a surefire way to turn heads.
