Mixing Prints Styling Tips

 

Citizen Blue

You’ll notice that a lot of our newest styles feature graphics that have a mixed media look to them – especially our panda graphic on our Baby Girl Kiri-e Panda Graphic Tee. Our designers were inspired by Japanese postcard art when they were designing this adorable panda. While it’s easy to wear a style that features a mixed print graphic (we love it!), mixing prints on multiple pieces of clothing can be a daunting task. We’ve made it easy for you to mix-and-match our newest baby girl styles. Follow along to get some inspiration…

Behind the Design: Geometric Prints & Patterns

Many of our prints and patterns in our newest collection were inspired by our trip to the southernmost tip of Argentina—our trip to Patagonia. A land of contrasting landscapes: mountains and valleys, glaciers, lakes and streams. Of browns and yellows, rusty pinks and the brightest blues. Florals and rock, grasses and ice. Shapes of all sizes. Everything we saw was inspiring. The prints and patterns on our girl and baby girl dresses are filled with the colors and prints we created from all of the inspiration. Here, we share with you photos from our trip that helped dictate the design of our prints and patterns on our newest styles.

A Detailed Look At Our Animal Graphics

Each season, our in house artists create unique graphics for tees. They paint, sketch, stamp and piece together the graphics you love. We take pride in not only our design process, but in the story behind each graphic. Each destination we travel to, we work to represent a handful of native animals. We love to learn about their behavior and habitats. We know our little citizens love animals, too! Patagonia is a land rich with animals, many of them relatively unknown to our own little citizens. The animals in Patagonia and throughout South America inspired and influenced the design of our newest graphics. Read on to see the graphics up close and learn about the animals behind them.

Behind the Design: Argentine Florals

BUENOS AIRES_LW_143

Flowers are everywhere in Buenos Aires. You’ll see them in the obvious places, parks, trees that line streets and in yards…but also in places you might not expect. You’ll find floral designs adorning signage (called filetado), sculptures and restaurant facades. You’ll see them in the textiles, the ceramics and embroidery. When our team traveled to Buenos Aires, they came back with pictures of the beautiful designs they found throughout the city. Learn about how the florals they saw inspired our designs for many of our baby girl pieces.

Behind the Design: Ranchero Graphic Tee

On our trip through Argentina, we had the pleasure of staying at La Candelaria del Monte, a fully working estancia in the Las Pampas region of Argentina. We met the owner, a real-life South American gaucho (cowboy), named Sebastián Goñi. Sebastián shared with us what it’s like to live on an estancia, and all the work that goes into running the farm. This September, you will find many graphics and prints inspired by the estancia itself: gauchos, criollo horses, open fields and trails. Our hope is that all little citizens feel the spirit of estancia life in their own home through these designs.
