Patternbank loves this vibrant new collection for Autumn/Winter 2014 from Basso & Brooke Studio. Their new season’s range has the signature Basso & Brooke digital trickery with layers of contrasting pattern plays. All-over photographic prints of texture and folds, sit against multicoloured collaged prints and sharp monochromatic pattern. Crisp B&W numerical simplicity mixes with a psychedelic floral riot, and even digital camo, traditional tartan and manipulated animal skins find their place in this feast of pattern and texture. See more from the Eye popping Basso & Brooke Studio here.
