Memphis group-inspired prints are emerging as a textural, surface update for 2014. Nathalie Du Pasquier’s capsule collection at American Apparel offers sartorial inspiration and Terrazzo projects’ Milan Design Week presentation of grainy overlays and primary color blocking can be used to inform interiors and editorial photography.
Parisian brand Maison Kitsune also joined the Memphis print movement with their patterned pop-up at the Roosevelt in LA this spring. We love Thistle Brown’s bold interpretation of Memphis mark-making and Haw-Lin’s ode styling for Süeddeutsche Zeitung magazine.
