You may have heard of "dopamine dressing" recently, a trend centered around wearing bright colors and cheerful prints to enhance your overall mood. Designers seemed to be well aware of the fad, based on the spring/summer 2022 runways. Many brands presented funky prints and silhouettes taken from the '60s and '70s, and generated a new wave of psychedelic fashion.
Monse and Rodarte showed off many pieces with mushroom prints, while Brandon Maxwell embraced colorful swirls and bold prints. Camille Miceli, Pucci's creative director, stayed true to the brand's roots with intricate patterns and playful colors. Now it's time to bring the groovy runway to your own closet.
