Textile trends, motives and prints 2016-2017: Half of the Sun
This textile trend has a common origin with the trend «Metallic and mirrors». It also reflects astrological nature of Libra sign.
Libra together with Aries marks the horizon line. Representatives Libra sign often lack the vital energy, of sunlight. They see the world with their very subjective point of view, in which there is never enough of the second half, whether it will be marriage partner or solar circle. Therefore, there is a kind of fabric print, like a circle, cut in half. I called it «Half of the Sun». Term of this trend is from September 2016 till October 2017, when Jupiter stays in Libra. Variants of this trend: a huge print «polka dots», which resembles the image of planets in Space. Sometimes the sun halves are shifted relative to each other and painted in different colors. I want to emphasize that this is different from the trend of textile prints: Solar, which was actual from July 2014 till August 2015, when Jupiter stays in Leo sign. Then were actual prints of a huge range with characteristic rays. New print «Half of the Sun» also produces the impression of naivety, resembling primitive cave paintings. It appears under the opposition between sign of Libra and Aries. As we remember, Aries is the first sign in Zodiac, which symbolizes childhood stage in human development. And here again, for the umpteenth time in a row, fashion spiral untwists and offers us the old versions of the new reading.
