At the Spring/Summer 2011 shows back in February, designers like Prada and Stella McCartney went bananas-literally- for tutti frutti prints like plantains, grapefruits, and tangerines. The motifs were stamped everywhere from pantsuits to swishy skirts and singlehandedly made the grocery store's produce aisle considered high-fashion.
And while it's easy to assume the trend would be a fleeting summer fling considering the warm weather, it turns out Mulberry is carrying the fad through fall.
The U.K. label has just rolled out a collection of "googly" fruit goods, including adorable cashmere sweaters, striped tanks, and scarves. It's even thrown in a swimsuit for good measure, so you can take it with you on your winter beach vacation...or just hold out til the temperatures rise again.
Sure, these pieces might not be certifiably organic. But unlike the fruit in your supermarket, this is one trend that's not going bad any time soon.
