Move over, checker print! Mushrooms are taking over as the hottest print for spring.
Date April 4, 2022
Of all the new trends that surfaced this season, there’s one in particular that has caught everyone’s attention: mushrooms. From clothing and accessories to beauty, food and interiors, fungi have taken over as everyone’s favourite fashion ingredient.
With sustainability becoming a priority across many industries, brands and designers have discovered the boundless possibilities of the previously overlooked species. According to the American Mushroom Society, mushrooms’ low-energy footprint makes them one of the most sustainably produced foods in the United States. And films such as the Fantastic Fungi have made apparent fungi’s medicinal qualities.
In fashion, brands such as Brandon Maxwell, Acne Studios and Sportmax have incorporated the mushroom into their Spring/Summer 2022 shows, while Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton took inspiration from the interconnecting power of mycelium for her latest collection. On the other hand, Stella McCartney not only made use of mushrooms’ spirited imagery for her Spring/Summer 2022 collection but also embraced their infinitely renewable qualities, launching the brand’s signature Frayme bag in mycelium leather.
If you’re looking to incorporate mushroom fashion into your wardrobe, look no further. From whimsical illustrations to groovy cartoon prints, we’ve gathered some of our favourite pieces for you to check out below.
