Spring/summer trend 2015: Hands and eyes

Mar 16, 2015

by Alice Young handmade and vintage goods

This spring/summer, hands and eye prints are on the fashion radar. A recurring trend for several years now; back in 2013 there were eye prints galore at Kenzo, and last year Zara created a dress that was seen on a plethora of bloggers and celebrities. You could say it became rather eye-conic.

The prints are infused with oodles of historical meaning: with roots in ancient cultural beliefs, secret societies, and the supernatural.

So, here is Etsy’s handy (geddit?) guide to the best anatomical prints for 2015…

Dab hand

Stay cool and polished in this pretty silk top.
